When I got to University of Mobile, I found it very difficult to decide on a major, as I was inspired by both business and psychology. UM has given me the opportunity to combine both – I graduate in the Class of 2019 with a major in Psychology and minor in general Business. I have always had a strong interest and desire to learn more about the human mind and behavior. Based on the business classes that I took, I realized that psychology plays a huge part in the world of business. I reached out to my advisor and talked about the field of industrial-organizational psychology. I am also really interested in clinical psychology. Throughout my junior and senior year, I have enjoyed the therapy-based classes with Dr. Aimee Var. She has done a phenomenal job giving us insight into her work as a therapist. She has inspired me along the way. Having the one-on-one relationships with professors and small classes have really helped me find my interests and strengths. This past October, I got accepted for my two-year master’s degree in psychology in Germany at the Jacobs University, concentrating in I-O psychology and clinical psychology. Jacobs University is a private, English-speaking campus in Bremen, Germany with the highest standards in research and teaching. It is an international community and represents more than 100 nations. I am very excited to meet new students and experts in the field of psychology. Another positive aspect is that I will be closer to home, which means a lot to me. I am very happy about this next step, and I am very thankful for the preparation that University of Mobile has provided me in order to grow as person and in my academics. Lastly, I am very thankful that Coach Uwe Tittl has given me the opportunity to be successful on the tennis court and in the classroom.
