1) Name: Ali

2) Interests in psychology: Marriage/family relations, children/adolescents, also those with mental illnesses, specifically schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, and their families. Also the staggering number of mentally ill that are imprisoned raises my concerns. Every time I say this, people look at me like I'm crazy, but I would like to work with the criminally insane.

3) Status: Undergraduate student majoring in clinical psychology. Minor in criminology.

4) Other things on my mind: In strong agreement with Hope, I would also like to work against the stigma that mental illness carries with it. I'd like to educate people about schizophrenia, since the general public knows little to nothing about it, sometimes believing it to be synonymous with multiple personality disorder.
