Major: Psychology, American Sign Language minor

Why did you choose Goshen?

I chose Goshen because it allowed me to fuse two of my passions and find opportunities in both of those fields.

Why did you choose your major?

I chose my major because it is something I have always been interested in. Through the years, I became more and more intrigued and wanted to learn more. It has now become something I want to go to grad school for, and later get my doctorate.

What career are you interested in pursuing?

The career I am interested in is forensic psychology, with goals of being a correctional counselor. I want to go into the legal field and provide psychological evaluations and assistance.

What is a valuable experience that you have had at Goshen?

One thing I have learned from my experience at Goshen is change is good. I moved here from a huge city, not knowing what to expect and I was terrified moving across the country alone.

However, by putting myself out there and joining clubs, I realized that the move was good for me. I also changed academic plans last year, and realized it was for the best. No matter how scary it is, change is worth it.
