Hello everyone! I am a third-year pursuing a dual degree in Human Development and Family Sciences. I’m from Springboro, Ohio, which is a suburb of Dayton. I am involved in a few different research labs around campus, including labs in psychology, human development and family sciences, and communication, where I have the opportunity to study cool things like how video games affect us. After graduation, I plan to pursue a Ph.D. in clinical psychology and eventually become an Air Force psychologist. Outside of psychology, I am a Social Change Ambassador, and I also co-lead a Bible study at the Newman Center. When I’m not studying, I enjoy hiking, playing piano and ukulele, singing, and doing yoga. If you ever have any questions or just want to chat about psychology, faith, or anything in between, feel free to reach out - I would love to meet with you!

Hi everyone! I’m a second-year from Columbus, Ohio. Though I’ve grown up fifteen minutes from campus, my family is from Pakistan and the country is as much my home as Ohio is. After undergrad, I’m currently interested in pursuing a career in either clinical or counseling psychology. Outside of the Psychology Department, I am a Morrill Scholar, an Event Chair for the Pakistani American Student Association, and I’m currently involved in Urdu Club, 1girl, and University Band. In my free time, I like to play my flute, hang out with friends, work on my art, and read. If you ever want to chat about anything, chill and doodle, or there’s something I can do to help or support you, feel free to reach out through my email; I’d love to get to know you!

Hi everyone! I'm a fourth-year with a double major in criminology/criminal justice and I'm from Dayton, Ohio. After graduation, I plan to attend graduate school to pursue a Psy.D in clinical psychology with a concentration in forensic psychology. I hope to work with underrepresented populations, such as people recently released from prison and/or under-resourced children. When I am not in the psychology building, you can find me playing soccer with my fellow Humanities Scholars, or selling desserts at Cheryl's Cookies in the Wexner. The rare times I am not studying, I enjoy working out, taking 5-hour naps, painting, and watching true crime documentaries and podcasts. If you ever want to chat about anything, don't hesitate to reach out! I hope to meet some of you soon!

Hey guys! I’m a second-year student from Maineville, Ohio (in the Cincinnati area). In addition to my psychology major, I’m minoring in Human Development and Family Sciences.
