Personal Statement

I am a senior at the University of Oklahoma. I will graduate in Spring 2024 with a BA in Psychology. I have also achieved a minor in Sociology. My goals after graduation consist of entering into a MA program specializing in Counseling or Clinical Psychology. My next option would be to become a criminologist, and work within the Criminal justice System. My future goals include working among tribal relations by assisting communities in providing mental health access. I will also prepare individuals who have limited resources, towards how to apply to colleges, resume building, and assist in applying for funding resources that coincide with their academic plans. I am motivated to engage among various tribal groups as a mentor and gain more knowledge of my own cultural identity while learning from others. I will strive towards becoming a mentor, as well as being a role model for the younger generations. I hope to pursue community outreach projects and develop skills that will give me a solid leadership role, while helping others.
