    Psychology Major, Spanish Minor

    I am from the Oneida Reservation near De Pere, Wisconsin, where I live with my parents, grandmother, and aunt.   As a young Oneida woman, I feel the need to serve my community.  At this time, this means furthering my education as much as I can, as well as working with Oneida youth in an internship at Oneida Children and Family Services.  Activities in the St. Norbert community include being the treasurer for the student organization, La Alianza, as well as being an active member of the Interdenominational Christian organization on campus, Cru.

    My research project for the McNair Scholars Program entails a meta-analysis of the psychological implications of Diabetes on the brain.  Coming from a tribe which has a high Diabetes rate, this researchtopic is important to my family, my community, and me.  While there are many areas of research for Diabetes, I am interested in the effects that Diabetes has on the emotional and psychological stability of the individuals who are diagnosed with the disease.   

    I intend to study Clinical Psychology in graduate school, in hopes of eventually earning a Doctoral degree in Psychology.  The McNair Scholars Program will help me achieve my goals by providing the research opportunities that I might not have otherwise had access to.  Also, the McNair Scholars Program will provide me with the much-needed support and guidance on my journey in higher education.
