Student Spotlight of the Month: Michelle Martinez
Behavioral Neuroscience Doctoral Student
Mission Early College High School C/O 2013
Michelle Martinez has been working diligently towards her goals and has not stopped after attending MECHS! She has achieved great things as an undergraduate student at UTEP such as being a liaison for the International Honor Society of Psi Chi! In addition, she has presented research in Cognitive Psychology and Behavioral Neuroscience at regional and international conferences!
With her passion for Psychology, she seeks out for opportunities and has been using them to the fullest. For example, she has worked with Dr. Wendy Francis in Experimental Psychology for her Masters and now works with Dr. Ian Mendez as a Behavioral Neuroscience PhD student.
Michelle is an outstanding student and the Early College Academic Success Center cannot wait to see what she will do next in life!
"With the support of my parents and my own will to succeed, I have been able to be in a position where I can communicate with the public about science and expand my knowledge on neuroscience."
