About Me

I am a senior now and looking to go into Veteran services after I graduate.


My main interests are in psychology and human development which tend to dominate my thinking in both my academic life as well as my personal life. I am also very interested in ways of boosting public awareness on veteran issues.

Thoughts on Learning Objectives

The topic of this program is new to me but i look forward to seeing where it takes me in my professional goals.

Issues I'm interested in

Veteran homelessness. Darfur. First amendment rights/censorship.


As to what I may bring to this program, I think I bring a different lens then most of the people in this class who are already in the realm of civic intelligence. Due to not having very much experience with these ideas but having lots of human development in my background could bring an interesting outlook to collective action.
