In college, as I became more politically engaged, my interest began to gravitate more towards political science. The interest in serving and understanding people has never changed, yet I realized I could make a greater difference doing something for which I have a deeper passion, political science. Pursuing dual degrees in both Psychology and Political Science, I was provided an opportunity to complete a thesis in Psychology with Dr. Sheryl Carol a Professor in Social Psychology at the University of Texas (UT) This fall I will complete an additional thesis as a McNair Scholar with Dr. Ken Chambers, Associate Professor in Latin American studies in the UT Political Science Department.
I was also wondering if you could help me on another matter. I am writing about my identity as an Indian, the kinds of stereotypes that come up, and how I have countered the stereotype. I am having a bit of trouble, however, on trying to get step 3 in. I think I might want to talk about how I could defend other parts that make up my identity, but I am struggling a little bit. I don’t want to be told of the content that makes this up as I wish to write from my heart. However, any information that could give me a little push would be much appreciated!
