Radwa Ahmed

Intern

My name is Radwa Ahmed and I am currently a first-year clinical PsyD student at the California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant International University. I graduated with my bachelor’s degree from the University of Central Florida in 2018, in which I majored in Health Sciences and minored in Psychology. Throughout my undergraduate years, I was a pre-medical student, as I intended on attending medical school, but I decided that I have a strong interest in psychology and switched career paths. Because of this, I have a background in pre-medical sciences and hope to incorporate that experience and knowledge within my future career in clinical psychology. I hope to gain more experience within pediatric neuropsychology as I have a strong interest in brain-behavior relationships, and I love working with children. During high school, I was a member of the early childhood education program, in which I was trained to essentially become a preschool teacher. Throughout those years, I found the areas of child development to be very interesting topics that resonated with me. Childhood and adolescence are very impressionable years of an individual’s life, so I hope to make a positive impact in the lives of children with my career in clinical neuropsychology.

I am currently in my first year of practicum training and was placed in the Life Skills Treatment Program. I was curious as to how we would conduct therapy throughout the COVID-19 pandemic but I’ve learned so much throughout these last couple of months. I enjoy the vastness in alternative delivery; we have Zoom groups that focus on a number of different types of activities which the consumers find very enjoyable and beneficial, we create YouTube videos focused on a several different topics which the consumers find helpful and entertaining, and we are able to have one-on-one time with the consumers whether it be via Zoom or in person, which has temporarily discontinued for safety reasons. I look forward to learning more about the consumers as well as ways in which we can help them develop important skills which would be beneficial to them throughout their lives.
