I am a psychology major and I LOVE IT! Paired with my minor (conflict resolution and traumatic studies) my ultimate passion is helping people. I am curious about everything. I am always coming up with questions and searching for reasoning. Perhaps this is why I was so enthralled with all my experiences in Italy; I was eager to learn more to better understand. I had the honor of meeting a prominent the Lord John Alderice. Not only was he a practicing psychologist, but also a Northern Ireland politician. Member of the Alliance party, he was driven to find peace and reconciliation. He approached other leaders that others found intimidating and threatening. As he explained to us, "to solve a problem, you must get to the heart of the pain; where it is coming from." We spent our last evening in Belfast sharing in a delightful dinner with a question and answer review. If this didn't inspire me to further pursue psychology, I don't know what would do it.
