I currently hold a Master's degree from UNL in Educational Psychology, specializing in cognition, learning, and development. In addition, I am completing my doctoral studies in the same specialization.

I have grown to understand the value of being able to connect with someone who is willing to lend time, an ear, and empathy. That same connectedness that has allowed me to grow over time, is what I desire to offer the campus community. Coaching has granted me a platform to help effect change, provide clarity, and most importantly listen.

I'm a junior majoring in Psychology and pursuing two minors in Biology and Political Science. My first language is French and I'm originally from the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

I am a coach because my experience as an English Language Learner in the past has taught me to learn to connect and communicate with others beyond the language barrier. Sometimes, words can't always explain how we feel, mostly in stressful moments. Therefore, I want to help you through those moments to balance and preserve your well-being.
