Major: Biochemistry and Psychology 

Hometown: Slinger, WI

My fellowship experience:
Specifically, this internship has given me insight as to just how broad the field of “clinical psychology” is, while also reminding me that specialization is not something I can or should worry about for a few years, at least.  I used to believe that I needed a set “plan” of what exactly I wanted to do and how I wanted to apply it to be successful.  Now I understand that this certainty is not as much of a necessity as I previously thought, and that so long as I intelligently follow my passions in this field, there will be something waiting for me at the other end.
