(she/her) Hi, I’m a third-year Psychology major here at MMC! I enjoy learning about the Psychology field and the various applications and connections it has to offer. I especially enjoy working with children, whether babysitting or at a summer camp, and learning about child development. I hope to specialize my interests in graduate school.
What made you want to be a peer mentor?
Transitioning into college isn’t easy, so providing a safe space for others to process their emotions, thoughts, or plans is rewarding. One-on-one mentoring allows for greater connection and understanding and gives people a chance to let their personality shine through. I would have loved to be guided by someone in my first year, so I’m happy to be part of an individual’s growth.
What do you enjoy most about MMC?
The small size of our school allows close-knit communities to develop! While it can feel intimidating to figure out where you stand, creating small connections, like through this program, will help you to branch out.
