As a result of my love for helping others, excitement for learning, and passion for instrumental performance, I plan to attend college with a major in Psychology and a minor in music. I strive to work towards a Ph.D. in psychology, and with this, I hope to help people, specifically children, work through challenges and improve their lives.
