We asked the members of the 2022-2023 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, and year?
The University of Alabama, Clinical Psychology & Law, 2nd year
Why psychology and the law?
I love the interplay of the legal system and psychology and getting to work one-on-one with patients. So many of them are going through an extremely difficult time in their life, and sometimes just one person to listen and understand can make such a difference.
What is your favorite thing about your current graduate program?
The opportunities to do clinical work and contribute to meaningful research! Plus, my lab is pretty awesome.
If you were not in graduate school what would you do?
Cliche.. but be in law school.
What advice do you have for those applying to graduate school?
Take your time - it's okay to take a year or a few years off. Figure out exactly what you want to do - it will happen!
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?
Gilmore Girls (my comfort show), New Girl (to laugh), and Friends!
Is cereal soup?
Explain your hot take about cereal.
I eat my cereal dry.. yikes!
Is water wet?
Explain your hot take about water.
If you put your dry hand in water and then take it out, your hand is wet.
What is a quote you like and who said it?
"Do I regret it? Yes. Would I do it again? Probably." - Nick Miller (New Girl)
If you could invite five people (dead or alive) to a dinner party, who would it be any why?
JonBenet Ramsey (need to solve the case), Taylor Swift (big swifty), Gordon Ramsey (eat some good food), Prince (because thats cool), and although not an actual human.. my dog.
What’s the best Wi-Fi name you’ve seen?
FBI Surveillance Van
