Monica will graduate from EWU in 2023, majoring in Applied Developmental Psychology and minoring in Spanish, with a certificate in Child and Family Support. For her 2022 Summer Research Internship, her research with mentor Dr. Shanna Davis explored the psychological effects of going to K-12 school in a language other than your first language. We know Monica will bring positivity and sharp perception to any graduate program she attends, and achieve her dream of helping the Latinx/Hispanic community access affordable mental health services.
