SCB: How do you plan on impacting your team this year as a freshman?

SCB: Even though you have a long time ahead of you, do you have any future plans with your psychology major?

AD:  I have no specific plans yet! I know that I would like to pursue a profession working with young adults or teenagers.  But I will see where the next couple years take me!
