HI there, I'm Estephanie! I'm currently a senior here at CSUN and I'm majoring in Psychology with a minor in Child and Adolescent Development (CADV). As well as being a Badge Project Peer Mentor, I'm also a research assistant for Dr. Kandice Grote's Orange Lab in the CADV department. I am also a member of the Transfer Student Alliance and the CSUN Psi Chi chapter, a national psychology honor society. I was part of Badge Project as a member before becoming a mentor so I'm excited to help students that are new to campus and Badge!
