Hometown: Cincinnati, OH
Future Plans: Clinical Psychologist
Greetings! My name is T. Dylanne Twitty hailing from "The Queen City", Cincinnati, OH. I am a senior Psychology major at Fisk University. Throughout my matriculation, I have been afforded numerous opportunities to explore different aspects of my field. This past summer, I was selected to participate in the Pre-Doctoral Scholars Institute at Louisiana State University. At LSU, I completed the project entitled “Sexual Minority Women and Cannabis Use: The Serial Impact of PTSD Symptom Severity and Coping Motives”. In addition, as a member of the W.E.B. DuBois Honors Program, I am currently working on a research project revolved around how Eurocentric beauty standards impact the self-esteem of minority women. Fisk University creates an environment that allows students to receive individualized attention and focused instruction. This safe environment has given me the confidence to push myself beyond my perceived limits and ultimately flourish beyond my wildest dreams. I plan to dedicate my career to addressing the barriers and vulnerabilities that underrepresented groups face. I’m very excited to take the skills and strategies that I have acquired from my time at Fisk University and use them in my future endeavors.
