Vivien is a junior studying psychology with the goal of becoming a mental health professional. She was first inspired to enter this field in high school while volunteering on a support app for teens and witnessing firsthand the dire need for access to effective mental healthcare. She aspires to work as a therapist as well as engage in larger-scale change through research and innovation. In her free time, she loves to play and write music, dance salsa, and explore new places (she will be studying abroad in Berlin this spring!).
