Olivia R. Garza
Director of High School Mentees
I currently am a junior at Trinity University. I am studying both psychology and history. I plan to have a career in child/adolescent counseling, as I am passionate about ending the stigma of mental, physical, and emotional disabilities. I am on board with SWAG to College because I believe in equal access to higher education!
I currently am a research assistant in a psychology lab run by Dr. Carolyn Becker. Our study, Body Project 4 High Schools, is implemented within San Antonio area high schools and promotes body positivity. Myself and other research assistants implement a Cognitive Dissonance based intervention to prevent the onset of eating disorders, and eating disorder behaviors for both female and male high school students.
