Flexibility, patience, hard work, and open-mindedness are all characteristics of my personality.

I have had several hands-on experiences in the fields of psychology (psychiatric hospital setting) and education (school setting) working with all age groups and having different needs that were context dependent to be catered for.

Throughout the process of my internships and training, I had to employ critical thinking skills to face any challenges that might have come up as well as being ethical and confidential. This is not only throughout my internships but also my life in general because I believe that confidentiality and being ethical are a way of life that gets implemented in clinical practice.
