Student Spotlight: Danielle

posted in: Scholar Spotlights | 0

Danielle, the CRLS Class of 2018 recipient of the Aurora M. (Ciccariello) Leydon Memorial Scholarship, now enrolled at the Bates College, told us:

“I believe that exploring our identities and how social and environmental influences impact our actions will lead to equality and equity. That is my pursuit. I want to combine my desire to study different branches of psychology with my growing interest in legal studies. I intend to further my exploration into the human mind, to investigate why people commit crimes, and survey different types of rehabilitation and other long-term solutions in place of prison. Being a juvenile prosecutor, but more importantly, a mentor, is the perfect fit for me, because it mixes problem solving with my love for children and my fascination with the criminal mind.¬† I want to use my passion to contribute purposefully and productively by participating in chaperoning youth on the right path to become productive members of society.”

Congratulations, Danielle!
