A Bit About Me
I was born into cross-sections as an Afro-Latina with Indigenous Caribbean roots born and raised in NYC, so it only makes sense that my life's work would be in the cross-sections of Health, Psychology, Media, and Lifestyle.
My drive for understanding the world has placed me in a variety of industries and my concern for the world took me through an expansive path of learning, healing, creating, and organizing. Below are a few notes about the highlights of my journey and some samples of my work in these various cross-sections.
Learning more about my field of study and the path I wish to carve out for myself and others, I used my custom roadmap created in the Educationtional Planning course I took the previous semester to take courses that aligned with my vision such as Media Psychology, Marketing, and Media Ethics. I learned the important contributions of each of these courses to one another, the depth to which we are influenced and influence others through the media we create, share, and consume, and the ethics within each role and step of the process.
After graduating with honors, a health coaching license, and an Associate Degree in Psychology I decided to pursue a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. I started with courses in Educational Planning, Cognitive Psychology, Biological Psychology, and Digital Storytelling. I learned more about the subsections of Psychology that contribute to my vision and how to put them all together in a way that others can learn from my research, path, and applications.
Tying together 2 years of consistent learning, courses in Cultural Anthropology, Multicultural Psychology, Photography, Research Methods, and a Practicum in Professional Studies for Health Coaching earned me a Licence in Health Coaching and an Associate Degree in Psychology with Honors as a member of Phi Theta Kappa.
Eager to assist a Covid changed world, courses in Adult psychopathology, Death & Dying, Social Psychology, and Sports Science helped me understand and empathize with more people within my community.
Determined to graduate in two years but also very interested in acquiring a health coaching license, I studied Health and Wellness as well as Sports Psychology.
Continuing my journey and building on foundational courses, I gravitated towards Human biology (lab included), Developmental Psychology, Positive Psychology, and Statistics for Social Sciences, also fulfilling my training to become a mandated reporter.
Embarking on a journey into a field of psychology that wasn't fully public knowledge yet, I took up foundational courses in Psychology, APA Style Writing, Ethics, and Health in pursuit of an Associate degree.
