Felicia had been a student at Rutgers College (Rutgers University), where she had majored in Psychology. According to Felicia, Project L/EARN has given her the preparation necessary to have a competitive edge when applying to graduate school. She feels that one of the strengths of the program had been, “learning how to conduct statistical analyses and applying it to our projects was extremely helpful in gaining a better understanding of research statistics and methods.”
As a result of this new in-depth understanding, there are new possibilities being offered to Felicia that she otherwise would not have been aware of. One of the most beneficial parts of the program for Felicia was attending the National Leadership Summit on Racial and Ethnic Health Disparities in Washington, D.C. The exposure and the contacts gave her ample opportunity to network with professionals that have similar goals and ambitions. Felicia would like to be able to graduate with a degree where her work incorporates a balance between research and clinical work.
