I was born and grew up in Trinidad and Tobago, and came to Rollins to study psychology. Since I would like to do a Masters in Applied Behavior Analysis to work with people with Autism, I’ve also chosen to try some education classes during this final semester.

Everyone in charge of Wellness Ambassador program has been amazing in pro­viding tools to make us healthier, happier individuals so we are better equipped to help others around us.
