I came to King's in 2007 knowing very little about King's and even less about Psychology. In my first semester, I took a course that turned out to be particularly influential on my academic career and my life generally--Psych 251. I immediately switched into a Psych major once I had finished the course intent on what I wanted to study. I was fortunate to have passionate, talented mentors (e.g., professors) who guided me as I found my feet as a novice researcher and academic. In 2010, I finished my degree along with honours as the Governor General Silver Medalist (for top GPA in the graduating class) and was blessed to receive a SSHRC award worth $17, 500 which allowed me to pursue my Masters of Arts in Communication and Technology.
