I am Miriah. I am 20 years old and I live in Tucson, Arizona. I love spending time with my family and friends, but lately I have spent most of my time working and getting ready for the fall semester. I am currently a junior in the College of Science.
I am so thankful for my education and proud of my accomplishments.
I will be the first woman in my entire family to graduate college. My dad is from Colombia and my mom comes from a disadvantaged family. I strive to be a successful and educated woman in the world to not only make myself proud, but to also make my family proud.
I am a strong mental health advocate and children's mental health is often overlooked. I would like to help make a difference by recognizing children's mental health issues and helping create a happier and healthier life for our next generation.
I am majoring in Psychology. I plan to continue on to receive my Masters and Doctorates. I plan to use my education to become a therapist for children.
