“Today” a student and “tomorrow” an advocate for marginalized populations, Angelique will join other UB alums who have set out to make a difference in the world.
Her future is bright: This fall, Angelique begins doctoral clinical psychology training at Long Island University and plans to work toward a postdoc fellowship and professional licensure.
And she’s going to make a difference:
“As a clinical psychologist, I hope to [be] an advocate for those who do not have the means or the platform to advocate for themselves, [using] my training to help those who cannot afford traditional therapy. I cannot fix issues that have existed for decades on my own, but I intend to make an impact.”
At a pivotal moment in history: “It often feels like there are so many seemingly irreparable societal ailments to remedy. However, the zeitgeist has inspired many young people, myself included, to rise to the challenge of trying. There is a lot to be said for how bold and brave today’s youth are in standing up for issues that matter to them. I’m continuously inspired by my peers, and I hope to be just as successful in effecting meaningful change.”
How she gets involved: Black Student Union/Phi Beta Kappa, Pi Delta Phi National French Honor Society, National Society of Collegiate Scholars, CSTEP, International Scholar Laureate Program/academic assistant, former associate chief justice of the Student-Wide Judiciary, residential educational tutor, campus health educator and Honor-Acker Student of Color Council.
