I'm a woman and I'm very proud to consider myself a feminist. I think women can achieve anything and I think gender shouldn't hold anyone back: male or female. I'm a big sister to the most incredible brother and I hope I'm a good influence for him. I'm a friend to some great people. I'm a psychology major. I've always wanted to help people and understand why people think and act the way that they do. I'm a Jersey girl. I've lived 20 minutes from the beach my whole life and could NEVER even consider living in a land locked state. I'm very proud of being from New Jersey. I model on occasion. I've been doing some modeling since my junior year in high school. I was scouted to model in New York City but was afraid of not getting an education and decided not to do it. I also didn't feel like I needed to go on a diet at 118 pounds, so here I am. However, I will be walking as a model in Charleston Fashion week which I am super excited about. I really enjoy writing. Anytime I get stressed or sad I like to put my feeling to paper. Its very cathartic for me.
An experience that influenced me
An experienced that influenced my life happened in a hospital. I had always wanted to be a therapist but I wasn't exactly sure if I was going to pursue it. I was visiting a friend of mine in the hospital and I helped her go to the bathroom because those hospital gowns are difficult. As she was in the bathroom I noticed a man was on a stretcher in the hallway. I asked him why he was in the hallway and he said he couldn't afford to be in a room like everyone else and the reason he was there was because he tried to commit suicide by drinking himself to death. I tried asking him why he would want to do that. He explained to me how difficult his life was. I tried to tell him how good life could be and convince him that life was worth it. My friend came out of the bathroom and we left. I never found out what happened to that man but he really impacted me. He made me want to help ease other's psychological pain. It was then that I decided I wanted to pursue psychology head on.
