My work with maltreated children and children with various mental health disorders taught me to be so patient. It’s an amazing experience. I love it! My experiences at the Child Study Center heightened my interest in the field and I feel I couldn’t get these clinical experiences in many other labs [and] never imagined having them as an undergrad!
