Why are you studying psychology and film/tevelsion?

"I have this double major because I'm very passionate about mental health as well as cinematography, creating, producing and things like that. I want to find a way to integrate both into my career."

What objects in your dorm represent your identity or home life?

“There's a little poem that my dad had when he moved here, and when we were moving out our stuff from our house, he found it. He was like, 'you should keep this.' It’s about work ethic, and how I should view my career. And so sometimes, when I'm not feeling motivated, I read it, and that helps me to refocus. I got this mug, like the first week I was here, and it says ‘people person’. I feel like I do like people, but I think the mug represents who I want to be. I put pressure on myself to always want to talk to people, but I think with getting this, I realize that's not me all the time, and that's okay to be reserved sometimes and spend time alone.”

What are you struggling with?

“Everyday interactions make me overthink about how I acted or how I reacted to certain things. I guess it's a lot of my inner critic, and how I perceive. One of the first weeks I was here, I went to Student Health Services, and I got a therapist, because, that's something I wanted for a long time, and it’s been helping a lot. I usually journal now, at the end of the week, and go over my thought process of how I percieved a conversation or how I decided to respond to certain things. I draw my feelings out in that way, and draw out what my inner critic would be like, then try to dissect, and that's been helping.”
