My name is Nicola. I’m currently in my third year of getting my BA in Psychology. I’ve always wanted to help people who are looking for answers, and studying psychology has broadened my ability to see the different angles from which to approach any problem. Studying psychology has so many benefits. It’s given me a deeper understanding of the social structures and influences that underlie the things we do. The skills I’ve learned will assist me in helping all kinds of different people in all kinds of different ways.
My hope is to make a positive change wherever I can. I want to empower people around me and be an inspiration. I would like to give back as well and rebuild communities and families. Psychology has impacted me on a personal level, and the tools I’ve acquired enhance my ability to make a positive change as I go.
