I am a fourth year student at the University of Toronto Mississauga, currently undertaking an Honours bachelor’s degree, with a double major in Psychology and Sociology. I am excited to be a part of a research team that seeks to apply the 6 Stages Framework to school curriculums, with the goal of integrating diversity and inclusion at all stages of education. As an international student, I believe that inclusivity and cultural awareness are integral parts of successful human interaction. Therefore, being able to use this framework to increase understandings of these concepts in different educational settings is of particular interest to me. Additionally, I am passionate about mental health, as well as breaking down cultural and social barriers to receiving psychological/mental health care. I am expecting to graduate in June, and hope to continue my studies in Psychology, with the ultimate goal of becoming a qualified clinical psychologist.
