About Me

Hi. My name is Nicole Brocious. I am a psychology major with minors in neuroscience and communications. I am passionate about learning about the brain, how to create and consume research, human life, human tendencies, and how to broaden my horizons and deepen my understanding of other points of view and other cultures. I want to use the information that I learn in my studies to help improve the lives of others in measurable, long-term ways. My biggest goal is to gain my Ph.D. and become a researcher, practitioner, and professor throughout the course of my life. I am hoping to use my degree and knowledge to work to remove mental health stigma and improve access to mental health resources because this can improve the lives of a great many people. I also want to use my degree to create research that furthers the field of psychology in new, unique ways. Another important goal of mine is the continuation of my studies of the Spanish language, and to gain fluency in Mandarin, which are additional ways I will better my understanding of the world and other cultures. I am a first-generation college student, and this identity is very important for me to express, as it has affected every aspect of my college career. It has given me a strong drive for success and achievement, as I will be the first in my family to reach these milestones. Additionally, I am an avid reader, especially for works of fiction, fantasy, and poetry, and I also enjoy writing.
