Bio

Hi!, my name is Daisy Salas. I am a full-time student at City Tech. I am currently in the Liberal Arts and Science major but, I am extremely interested in pursuing a psychology degree. I am fascinated with learning how and what drives individuals to do certain things. Also, something that I am passionate about is helping children or helping anyone, in general, overcome difficulties and evaluate how past experiences shape out a person. Therefore, some of my interests include doing research in behavioral science. A few of my personal attributes are that, I am an incredibly patient individual. I am aware that things or success don’t happen overnight and so it is important to know how to manage when a situation like that presents itself. In addition, I am a team player. I enjoy working with people and taking in their input, thoughts, and opinion; so that together we can better our work or a project. In all, I anticipate on becoming more knowledgeable of this field, as well as advancing in my education and career in the NIH Bridges Scholars 2017 cohort 3.
