Iā€™m a recent graduate from UCSD and received my BAs in Psychology and Literature/Writing. I hope to one day help field research in adolescent and adult treatments and therapies for autistic individuals, and emphasize working with the autistic community as an important aspect of being a researcher and clinician. In my spare time I enjoy crafting, video games, needlepoint, and bees. When I retire from my future life as a clinical/research advocate I would like to turn to beekeeping to help sustain one of the most important creatures on our planet while also being surrounded by many beautiful flowers.
