A second experience entails my academic upbringing. My parents never had the chance to attend school – an opportunity they left to my sister and me. Both parents only wanted to see us happy and believed that education was a stepping-stone to opportunities beyond our wildest dreams. They supported the decisions and life choices that I made. In my senior year in High School, I registered for an elective Psychology class – a decision I belief was the best I ever made. The insight I have gained from classroom experiences and real-world encounters has greatly inspired me to seek an in-depth understanding of psychological phenomena. These phenomena include the manifestation of mental illnesses and the difficulties associated with mental abnormalities. I have financed a large part of my education in my quest for said psychological knowledge. With luck, I plan to pursue research in incarcerated youth, mental illness and low-socioeconomic status. I received my Bachelor Degree, Master’s Degree and Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study in School Psychology. My externship experience was with a preschool disabled population.

The duration of my stay in these different positions was a learning period for me. I observed in different people the behaviors, effects, and cognitive aspects I had learned in my classes. This aroused an interest in how human psychology is oriented.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
