I am a sophomore majoring in Nursing with a Global Health certificate. My passion for working with children started with many summers of nannying and developed further when I spent time in Peru working with children at an orphanage and in underprivileged communities.  I joined the Infant Learning Lab because I love working with kids and am very interested in learning more about how they develop language. 

I am still unsure about my plans after graduating, but I hope that working with children, specifically with special needs, will be incorporated in whatever my future holds!
