I am a junior at the University of Texas at Austin and I am majoring in Social Work. I am currently a Peer Educator for UT’s Counseling and Mental Health Center’s Peer Educator Program. This past summer, a close friend of mine died by suicide. I am very passionate about mental health and suicide prevention and so value this opportunity to be a part of a national organization to raise awareness about suicide prevention. I hope to pursue a Master’s Degree in Social Work and then a Psy.D. My goal is to become a therapist and help adolescents and college students!
