Graduates 2018-2019

Senior Profile: Claire Williams (Hispanic Studies ’19)

My time at William and Mary has been invaluable and I truly mean it when I say that I would not trade my liberal arts education for anything. My psychology degree instilled in me the importance of multi-systemic prevention and intervention to combat individual and social issues. My Hispanic Studies major led me to better understand the importance of practicing cultural humility in spaces of diversity and to be aware of and act on social injustices and inequities. Each day I leave class not necessarily optimistically inspired, but rather deeply pensive about how I can alter the world. I will continue this process of growth at Indiana University’s Counseling Psychology Doctoral program in the fall to study trauma, risk, resilience, and emotional and educational outcomes in Latinx children and young adults. My classmates, professors, teammates and coaches have pushed and supported me to grow into a better version of myself and I am beyond grateful for all these amazing people who have deeply affected me and made my time here
