Denia's Story

My passions are psychology and criminology.

Since I was young, I've watched shows like Criminal Minds and NCIS. I've grown to become more and more interested in learning about crimes and the cause and effects of them. I would like to combine my interest in counseling with law and go into Criminology. I was influenced by the character Spencer in Criminal Minds, who helps profile serial killers and find out why they killed people. I would like to do the same, in addition to helping victims cope with the effects.

Attending Discover Hopkins will help me pursue my passion for psychology by giving me an opportunity to experience being in the field. This will help me figure out if psychology is really what I want to major in college. Right now, I'm taking Human Behavior in school. I believe my experience at Discover Hopkins will help me gain a deeper understanding of the field of psychology.

A Note from Ms. Volo, Denia's Teacher

Denia would make an excellent candidate for the Discover Hopkins program. This program will offer Denia a closer look at psychology and how the brain works while also connecting back to the forensic science/criminology path that she is interested in. Since Denia is so passionate about this field, I know that she will challenge herself to understand the content and concepts offered throughout this program. I also believe that this program will help build her collaborative skills as she works with her peers to solve problems.
