Congratulations, Sophia!

Congratulations to one of our incredible past study coordinators, Sophia Krakowiak, for getting accepted into Loyola Marymount University’s School Psychology Program!

Here’s what she had to say about her time in the DiSH Lab:

“Joining the DiSH lab was one of the best decisions I made in my academic career at UCLA. Dr. Tomiyama and her great graduate students gave me experiences that I don’t believe I would have gotten in any other setting at UCLA.  Through working in the DiSH lab and taking courses with Dr. Tomiyama I was able to gain important skills and knowledge about the field of psychology and research. I loved the friendly, professional and caring environment provided by Dr. Tomiyama and her graduate students. Dr. Tomiyama is an amazing mentor and professor and I suggest that anyone who has a chance to work with her or take her classes jump at that opportunity. Dr. Tomiyama and the DiSH lab showed me that research is really fun and exciting! If I hadn’t gone into an applied career path in school psychology, health psychology research would have definitely been my route! A big thank you to Dr. Tomiyama, her team and to the members of the DiSH lab!”

We’ll miss seeing you around UCLA, Sophia, but we’re so proud of all you’ve accomplished! Best of luck as you begin your next chapter!
