The Mercer University graduate student recently sat down to discuss her studies in Clinical Psychology and her passion for fostering cats and kittens
ATLANTA, GA / ACCESSWIRE / September 9, 2021 / It is with great enthusiasm that graduate student Emily Sakamoto announces she is the subject of a new exclusive and in-depth interview. The interview, which was curated by an online periodical that deals with matters of health and wellness, touches on topics ranging from her motivation to excel in her chosen area of study to how she maintains a solid work/life balance while conducting her research.
Regarding the source of her motivation in academia, Emily answers, "it's definitely digging into new research," adding, "there's so many opportunities to present at conferences or submit papers and really get to know people in the psychology community. I'm highly motivated by wanting to meet other people in this field and learn from them and talk with them."
As for how she manages to stay calm and centered while juggling a full academic workload, Emily Sakamoto responds by citing her passion for fostering wayward and rescued cats, as well as a particularly creative way of finding new homes for them. "I also enjoy taking my cats on stroller walks. I put them in a mesh baby stroller and walk them around and they seem to really enjoy it. It's a great way to advertise that they're up for adoption. People ask about the stroller all the time. It really gets attention. I've even made my cats little business cards that I hand to people when they ask and hopefully it gets the word out that they need a home."
To learn more about Emily Sakamoto and her insights into clinical psychology, as well as the fostering of cats and kittens, keep watch for the release of this interview in its entirety in the coming days.
