When I was a young girl I asked question after question about things that an ordinary child wouldn’t ask about or even be interested in. As I matured, I found a love for the human mind, which unlocked even more questions. How does the human mind process information? Where is it stored? What makes mentally disabled people, disabled? What makes the clinically insane people, insane? And how do you decipher what is normal brain functionality based on human interactions and science? We can only make assumptions of the human mind’s mysteries based on the information presented to us from hundreds of other psychologists. I’ve read the same information in a different format, written by a ton of other people, but I still feel like there is an infinite amount of information that has yet to be discovered. I would like to be the social psychologist that presents this information. I believe that when I really understand the human mind through social relationships and science, it will unlock so many doors from background on neurological disorders to better advising those with socially challenged behaviors. With more time and research, there is a good chance that the world we live in can be significantly altered. There could be more cures, more careers, healthier minds, and a better living environment for everyone. Some secrets are worth sharing if it means the entire world can benefit.
