Cecilia Hinojosa shares her journey as a researcher
Cecilia Hinojosa’s passion for psychology was sparked by an unlikely interest as a teen—a fascination with why people become serial killers. But it was her desire to learn more about post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in veterans that ultimately led her to become a researcher.
In the latest episodes of the “Become A Researcher” series, Hinojosa, PhD, shares what shaped her as a scientist, how she persisted through feelings of self-doubt as a doctoral student and what she currently does as a postdoctoral researcher with the Grady Trauma Project.
“It is exciting to see my story,” she said. “But it also places me in a very vulnerable spot that I am learning to embrace. As long as my story helps inspire one person, it is all worth it.”
Juan Castillo’s educational journey came with its fair share of ups and downs. He shares his story in the new “Become A Researcher” video series from the Diversity Program Consortium’s Enhance Science project.
