Groups I Identify With:
I’m originally from Miami, Florida where I grew up with a younger brother and 2 pugs. In my free time I love cooking and doing yoga! I am currently a student at UT Austin getting my Masters in Speech Pathology. I work in UT’s Aphasia lab where I help with neuroimaging and therapy protocol. I hope to have a career as an SLP in a hospital, hopefully back in LA!
Follow your interests above all else. And it’s never too late to switch majors or career paths! Try as many avenues as needed until you find what feels right.
