Hey everybody! I am a second-year student majoring in Psychology with a minor in Spanish, and am following the pre-med track. I am from a tiny town in Northeast Ohio called Southington. I am planning on attending medical school after graduation and hope to work in pediatrics! Here at Ohio State, I am in a workout club called CHAARG, I volunteer with a group called Students Supporting People with Down Syndrome, and also at the Columbus Dream Center. Further, I participated in BuckeyeThon this year! I couldn't be happier with my decision to become a part of Psychology at OSU. I love connecting with new people; please feel free to reach out anytime!

I am a fourth-year triple majoring in Psychology, Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, and Sexuality Studies. I hope to go to graduate school next year for clinical psychology to continue researching mental health and sexuality. I spent my childhood in Rhode Island, my teenage years in the Dallas, Texas area, and am now loving my time here in Columbus! Over my first three years at OSU, I was able to go abroad with the Psychology and Culture trip, get involved with research, present at the Psychology Research Colloquium and Denman, and work as a Psychology Student Ambassador and a University Ambassador. When I'm not working on my research or applications to graduate school, you can find me cheering on the Buckeyes at the Shoe, cuddling my pet hedgehog, or watching documentaries on Netflix. I'm always down to grab some coffee and chat. Can't wait to meet you all!

Hi Everyone! I am a second year Psychology major from Pembroke Pines, Florida. I moved the summer after my junior year(!) to Ohio to come to The Ohio State University. After graduation I hope to go to graduate school and get my doctorate in Clinical Psychology, specializing in forensic psychology (if you've ever seen Silence of the Lambs, it's what Clarice does...horribly). When I'm not fulfilling my Ambassador duties, you will find me reading on my nook or kindle, watching any nature/prison/history documentary I can find, or watching almost any televised sport. I am also a member of OSU's chapter of the Program for Advancing Scholarship and Service (PASS) and its sister organization MUNDO, both of which have helped this sprawling campus feel smaller. I love meeting new people and can't wait to meet all of you. If you see me on campus and recognize me don't be afraid to say hi! Go Bucks!

Hey guys! I'm a second-year Psychology major with a minor in Neuroscience, and I am from Huron, Ohio (it's right by Cedar Point!). I've been raised a Buckeye and love Ohio State even more than I thought. I'm involved with Autism Speaks and Special Olympics here on campus and work in Dr. Walton's Autism Spectrum Disorder research lab. When I'm not relaxing outside or listening to music, I love going to sporting events and exploring the Short North with friends. After undergrad, I plan to go to graduate school for Clinical Psychology with a focus in Pediatric Neuropsychology to help children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other developmental disorders.

Hello everyone! I am a second-year Psychology major from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I am planning to double major in Child Development and Substance Misuse, and after graduation I am planning to attend graduate school to get a masters degree to be a Child Life Specialist. In the future, I hope to work as a Child Life Specialist at a children's hospital. Besides Psychology Student Ambassadors, I also participated in BuckeyeThon this past year and plan on participating every year until I graduate. In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with my friends and family, being outside, playing soccer, and watching Grey's Anatomy. I am also a huge sports fan, so you can find me at many of the sporting events on campus, especially all of the football games! If you see me on campus please stop me and say hi, or email me with questions! Go Bucks!

Hi everyone! I am a fourth-year Psychology major with minors in Neuroscience and Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies from Cincinnati, Ohio. I hope to attend grad school in the future, and I currently work as a thesis student and research assistant in the Motivation and Cognitive Science Lab. When I'm not in class or sporting my red polo, you can find me singing with Scarlet and Grace Notes, the premier all-female acappella group on campus, or bundled up in my Gryffindor robes watching Harry Potter. If you're ever looking to get psych-related questions answered over ice cream or coffee, feel free to flag me down at department events or send me an e-mail!

Hello Everyone! I am a Second Year from Cleveland, OH, majoring in Psychology with a minor in African American and African Studies. After graduation, I plan to go to graduate school and eventually become a Child Psychologist to help children from families with low socioeconomic status. When I am not in my red polo for Psychology Ambassadors, I am either doing volunteer work with children, learning about/fighting social justice issues, or participating in recruitment events. Water bottles are literally my favorite thing ever! In my free time I am most likely adding a bunch of items to an online shopping cart (that I might not ever really buy), binge-watching a show on Netflix (the current show is Grey's Anatomy), or hanging out with friends! Go Bucks!

Hello! I am a third-year Psychology major, Education and Disability Studies minor from Marlboro, New Jersey. After graduation, I hope to go to graduate school and become a School Psychologist to help promote learning in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. My time at Ohio State so far has been even more amazing than I expected. I have found my home with Pi Beta Phi Sorority, obtained an internship with the Haugland Learning Center, and work as a research assistant in the Clinical Neuroscience Lab. I look forward to making as many connections as I can within the Psychology department and creating memories that will last me a lifetime! Go Bucks!

Hi there! I'm a fourth year Psychology and Business Dual Degree originally from Wadsworth, Ohio. When I'm not working as a student ambassador, I'm probably studying, watching spooky movies, playing video games (aka losing Super Smash Bros), drinking coffee or exploring Columbus (while drinking coffee). As far as other student involvement goes, besides being a super cool student ambassador, I'm a member of OSU's Pro-Life Club, the Industry Clusters Program through Fisher College of Business, and OSU's upcoming Lutheran Sorority. When I graduate, I want to work in the marketing field, and probably go back to school down the road. Feel free to come talk, get coffee, or school me in Super Smash Bros.

Hey there! I am a fourth year Psychology major and Cognitive Neuroscience minor from Dublin, Ohio. I eat, sleep, and breathe Ohio State football, for I have been to an Ohio State football game every year since I was 6 years old. When I'm not rockin' the red polo with my fellow Psychology Student Ambassadors, you can find me working as an undergraduate research assistant for the Cognitive Development Lab or studying/watching Netflix in Thompson Library. I usually spend my weekends hanging out with friends on campus and frequenting the many fine establishments High Street has to offer. After graduation, I plan on attending a PhD program in Clinical/Developmental Psychology in order to achieve my life-long dream of becoming a Pediatric Psychologist. Even though I am quite large in stature, don't be afraid to come say hi if you see me!! I can't wait to see y'all, and GO BUCKS!!!

Hi guys! I'm a second year Psychology major with a minor in Forensic Science from Cleveland, Ohio. After graduation, I hope to work in either law enforcement, criminal justice, or go to graduate school for Forensic Psychology. In addition to the Ambassador Program, I'm a member of Arts & Sciences Student Council, Sociology & Criminology Club, and I play cello in the Buckeye Philharmonic Orchestra. In my free time, I enjoy online shopping, binge watching Dexter, and finding free food on campus. I frequent Hughes Hall where I work as an Instrument Room Assistant, as well as Insomnia Cookies. Like Alexandrea, I am also a water bottle enthusiast, and am a supporter of glass water bottles. Go Bucks!

Hi everyone! I am a third year Psychology major with a minor in Organizational Communications from Jacksonville, Florida. Despite being from the sunshine state, I am a born and bred Buckeye and I love everything about this University. When I’m not in my red polo for Psychology Student Ambassadors, you can find me around campus in another red polo for the Student Alumni Council. In my free time I like to binge-watch Netflix, attend any OSU sporting event, spend time with my friends, and explore Columbus. In the future, I hope to attend graduate school for Human Resources (maybe in a state with a milder climate). I can’t wait to meet you all and I am always available for a cup of coffee or scoop of ice cream! Go Bucks!
