We asked the members of the 2021-2022 Student Committee to answer some questions about themselves to help you get to know who they are and what they do.
What is your school, program & year? Second year Master's in Clinical Psychology student at Sam Houston State University.
Why psychology and the law? I have a strong interest for understanding the intersection of psychology and the law with respect to children. Specifically, what allows for two individuals to grow up in the same environment with the same risks and have different life outcomes.
If you could only watch 3 movies or tv shows over and over for the rest of your life, what would they be and why? The Office - it's my comfort show; Elf - My favorite Christmas movie; Martin - too many classic episodes
Is cereal soup? No. Cereal is meant to be cold/lukewarm, and made with milk and some type of carb. Soup is meant to be hot and made with a broth with some type of meat and/or vegetable. They're definitely not one and the same.
What is a quote you like and who said it? "When life is sweet, say 'thank you' and celebrate. And when life is bitter, say 'thank you' and grow." - Shauna Niequist
What is your favorite thing about your current graduate program? My cohort!
If you were not in graduate school what would you do? I would probably travel to different countries and learn about different cultures and traditions.
If you could invite five people (dead or alive) to a dinner party, who would it be and why? My mom - I have so much to tell her; Princess Diana - she seemed so much fun to be around; Neil DeGrasse-Tyson - I want to ask him a lot of questions; Naomi Campbell - she is my favorite supermodel; Barack Obama - I think he is one of the most interesting people on the planet.
What advice do you have for those applying to graduate school? Start early and build connections with professors early!
What’s the best Wi-Fi name you’ve seen? Bill Wi the Science Fi
