My name is Brianna, I am 22 and a senior at Old Dominion University. I am studying Human Services Major and Minor Psychology. I am a first generation college student. I am also the oldest child in my family. There has always been pressure on me to set a good path for my siblings. When I started ODU I was undeclared and was overwhelmed with choosing a major. I eventually reached out to the Student Success Center and eventually I found Human Services.
The one thing I have always known I’d like to do with my life is to help people. Essentially making a difference in people’s lives is the most important aspect of a future career to me. I have gained some insight into mental health while caring for my mom and the difficulties she faced on a daily basis while suffering with Cancer this is one area I would like to gain more knowledge on in my career.
