About the Host

I recently graduated from NYU with my B.S. in Applied Psychology. I decided to study psychology precisely for its diverse applications, but as I neared graduation, I still didn't know how I wanted to apply psychology to make a positive impact. Through 1:1 conversations with 200+ psychology students, I quickly realized this challenge was widespread.

So I created Psych Mic, originally as a live event series, where each week I’d highlight a professional over Zoom in front of an audience who could engage in Q&As. After 12 successful events, I decided to turn Psych Mic into a podcast to share this passion with more people, like you!

I hope the speakers inspire you as much as they've inspired me!
