Hello again everyone! We hope that ya'll are having a great start of the week so far.
For this week's meeting, we had another guest speaker! Dr. Morales' colleague, Dr. Alison Cerezo, a Counseling Psychologist from the Department of Counseling, Clinical, and School Psychology at UC Santa Barbara, came into talk a little about herself, and what she's currently doing in the field of psychology!
Her area of research is about eliminating social and health disparities. A little bit about herself is that she is from Pico Rivera, and has two brothers! She completed a research master's program at UCLA, and she studied ethnic identity. She realized that she had a passion to write and serve her community. She eventually got admitted to the University of Oregon, and went into counseling psychology. She was there for 5 years, and went on to complete an internship at UC San Diego!
Some recommendations she had to our Psi Chi members that do not know what they want to do with a Psychology bachelor's, was to not stress too much, focus on productivity, and continue to do good work. She also recommended that if you want to get your Masters, that it's better to look into Cal States, and if you want to get your Doctorates, it's better to look into UC's.
Dr. Alison Cerezo, definitely gave an interesting and engaging talk to our Psi Chi members! We appreciate and are thankful for her efforts to come to our meeting to personally give us some insight. Thank you so much Dr. Alison Cerezo!
Thank you again to our members who came out this week. We hope to see ya'll next week!
