I am a junior at San Diego State University, I am from San Diego, and this is my first experience in the lab. I am interested in social psychology and I want to gain experience in research as well as understand what is expected in the lab. I became interested in this lab after taking a social psychology course with Dr. Marx and what really stuck with me is how significantly stereotypes can affect our lives on a day-to-day basis.
More than gaining research experience, I hope to understand how the role model effect is able to impact the academic performance of underrepresented minorities. I hope to fulfill the expectations that benefit my future plan of going to a Masters program.
Education: BA May 2021 (e), San Diego State University (Psychology)
