Hello, I was raised in Littleton, NC. In 2016, I received my BA in Psychology from Winston-Salem State University, where I was trained and mentored by Amber DeBono. Afterwards, I received my MA from North Carolina Central University, where I worked with psychologists such as Christopher Edwards to expand my interests in the field.
Broadly, my research focuses on understanding how discrimination and stereotype threat affects the self-efficacy and achievement of individuals from marginalized communities. Additionally, I am interested in the development of “safe spaces,” and how to better implement anti-discrimination rhetoric in spaces where underrepresented individuals have historically not been allowed.
