What are some of your interests and involvement outside the Gannon Scholars program?

I’m currently researching the mental health of immigrant families, focusing particularly on immigrant mothers, whose mental health and wellbeing is often ignored. I also tutor CPS juniors to help them prepare for the SAT. On campus, I am a part of Loyola University Psychology Association (LUPA) and Psi Chi, international psychology honors society.

How have you benefited from the Gannon Scholars program?

Since the first day of freshman year, the Gannon Scholars program has allowed me to feel a very strong sense of community at Loyola. The discussions that we have constantly help me gain a deeper understanding of my own values and beliefs, while also showing me how much more I have to learn about myself and the world. Additionally, the program has really supported me in the different stages of the research process and helped me gain mentorship from other Gannon Scholars.
