STAND Coordinator | Psychobiology 2020
WHY DID YOU BECOME A PART OF SCOPE?
I joined SCOPE in hopes of not only stepping out of my comfort zone but also making a difference in our community. My past year with STAND has given me an opportunity to reach out to the neurodiverse community that lacks so much support and resources. I have no doubt that SCOPE will continue to be a foundation for my growth in understanding and promoting much-needed awareness for neurodiversity here at UCLA.
WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO LEAD YOUR SPECIFIC PROGRAM?
STAND stood out to me in its unique mission statement to create an inclusive community and resource center for neurodiverse students here at UCLA. Navigating such a large campus can be extremely intimidating for students with neurological differences, and I am so proud to be a part of STAND, the first undergraduate, student-led organization on campus geared towards supporting these individuals to their full potential. Starting my second year with STAND, I took on the coordinator position to play a more active role in creating more events and projects catered towards promoting neurodiversity and inclusivity on campus. STAND has given me a passion in neurological differences and psychology and I hope to grow this organization even further and motivate others to make a difference in our own UCLA community as well.
I dislike fruits and had my first banana at 19 years old.
FUTURE GOALS AND ASPIRATIONS
In the future, I hope to go to medical school and become a pediatrician with a focus on child development or OB-GYN.
