Undergraduate College/University: Stony Brook University
Major (Minor): Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019
Hi everyone! My name is McKenna Farrell and I am from Shoreham, NY.
I just recently graduated with my B.A. in Psychology with the distinction of Summa Cum Laude from Stony Brook, and I am very excited to begin my graduate studies at this University. Throughout my undergraduate education, I developed a great interest in abnormal psychology, stress, and the ways in which adverse life experiences can influence our development. Additionally, I have some experience working in a daycare and love being around children. For this reason, I would like to expand my knowledge in developmental psychology, and gain more experience working in a lab that focuses on intervention and treatment of youth mental health problems. Upon completion of this program, I would love to pursue a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology.
Outside of school I work part-time in customer service at my local supermarket where I have learned to communicate effectively with a large array of personalities. Otherwise, I am an avid animal lover and enjoy being with my dogs, listening to music, and watching horror movies in my free time.
