“I believe my degree has equipped me with something that is tremendously advantageous: psychological intuition. It is incredible how many things in the world are about or relate to people. Knowing how to approach problems with the scientific understanding of how the mind, body and brain work makes you better able to navigate complex situations with clarity.”
