research intern

May 2021 - August 2021 Boston, MA
“This internship was an amazing opportunity for me to study what I love and learn more about what a job in the psychology field would look like. I was able to see that being a psychologist was more than just talking to others about how they feel and why they feel like that. It is a field where you can just sit at an office and collect data, analyze datawork, or be around others and pick at their minds. Working with patients and psychologists I was able to see the diverse field that psychology is and even changed my mind on what I want to do with my life in terms of continuing a degree in psychology.”
