Growing up, I tended to be more sensitive and attentive to others’ feelings and emotions. This led me to develop my interest in learning about people. My friends and family members tended to share their problems to me from when I was a high schooler. Since then, I realised I enjoyed listening to others’ stories. Being a listener wasn’t enough; I wanted to do more for others. That’s when I decided to learn more about psychology, hoping to build the necessary skills to offer help in a practical way and raise awareness about the importance of mental health.
Being a clinical psychologist isn’t just about helping with issues but to also help people have a better understanding of themselves. I believe that psychology empowers people, and I would like to be a part of it.
