Gabrielle is a 2nd year Psychology BSc student at the University of Birmingham and a Psychology A-level tutor. She hopes to work within the field of Clinical Psychology, with a special focus on mental health interventions for children and adolescents. She is also currently a member of her university’s African & Caribbean Society, Psychology Society and cheerleading team. She is passionate about the de-stigmatisation of mental health and addressing the racial disparities within Psychology.
Gabrielle’s role at the BiPP Network as a Research Assistant (Social Media) Intern will involve using online platforms to create engaging campaigns and investigating the effectiveness of multiple BiPP Network projects for our target audience. Gabriell’s motivation for joining the BiPP Network stems from her awareness of the lack of representation in undergraduate Psychology and she wishes to use her social media skills to educate, motivate and inspire students about various careers within Psychology. Overall, she hopes to help improve the racial disparities within Psychology by targeting undergraduate students and providing them with networking opportunities to help them progress within their chosen fields.
