As a first-year graduate student in the STEPP lab, I am greatly interested in studying how peer-role models affect the social environment of education. As an alumna of a women’s college, I also look forward to continuing work that explores how gender and racial stereotypes influence the success and academic outcomes of diverse student groups. Through the MA program, I plan to become an excellent researcher, well-rounded scientist, and critical thinker. Using data analysis skills and knowledge of research design gained in the STEPP lab, I intend to pursue a Ph.D. in Social Psychology to further explore interventions that address the negative impact of stereotype threat and support the academic achievement of students from diverse groups.
