I am a Master's student in the Child Development & Family Studies emphasis of the Educational Psychology program. I am interested in adolescence, resiliency, and positive youth development.

I am from Kingston, Jamaica. I am a graduate student currently pursuing my Master’s in Educational Psychology with an emphasis in Child Development and Family Studies. My research interest is maternal authoritarian parenting and how this influences adolescents' prosocial behaviors towards friends and strangers. For my future interests, this lies in Pre-K education as I wish to pursue a career as a Pre-K teacher in the United States and later back home in Jamaica, or even open my own child care facility.
