Hello! I am Jessica Briltz! I am currently in my forth year of Psychology, but I am very interested in social work and currently work in a social work/psychology type field! I've had the privilege of working with three boys who have autism throughout my employment at the Autism Centre! Once I complete my undergrad I hope to get my masters in occupational therapy! :) I have many passions including mental illness, veganism, environmental issues, and disabilities!
Although I'm not in the social work program, I believe the information taught in social work classes will benefit me in pursuing my goals. Additionally, I think critical thinking skills are very important and more people should take the time to develop these skills, especially since there is so much information floating around.
I hope to learn more about the social work profession, as well as more about myself. I want to further develop my knowledge of a variety of topics in order to better help the people around me.
