EASTERN UNDERGRADUATE REGIONAL REPRESENTATIVE'S MESSAGE
Nkemka Anyiwo is currently a senior at the University of Maryland, College Park pursuing bachelor degrees in Psychology and African American Studies. She was raised in the Prince Georges County, Maryland right outside of Washington, DC. Growing up as a child of African immigrants, Nkemka became inspired to learn more about African culture throughout the Diaspora and how identity influences psychological wellbeing. In the future she plans to enter a Clinical/Community Psychology Ph.D program. Her research interests include the development of cultural competent evidence based treatments for people of African ancestry and the community-based intervention for African American youth.
Nkemka recently became apart of ABPsi but after attending this year's National Conference in Crystal City Virginia, she was inspired to take a more active role. In her position as the Eastern Undergraduate Representative, Nkemka plans increase the amount of student circles in the Eastern Region and to get more undergraduate students actively involved in ABPsi.
