Jackie Bousek double majored in Cinema Studies as well as Visual Art with a concentration in psychology at Oberlin, graduating this past May. Currently she is a student at SAIC, where she is working on getting her MA in the Art Therapy program. She writes, “I am taking five classes. I really enjoy it and cannot see myself doing anything else right now. Every time I learn more about art therapy I am reassured that this is exactly where I want to be and what I want to be studying.”
Jackie was a McNair scholar for two years at Oberlin, and also says: “I thank the McNair program and all my professors and friends for encouraging me to even apply to graduate school; without their support I would have not been able to do so. The McNair program especially helped me prepare for the process and gave me insight on what to expect, and for that I am forever grateful.”
Thanks for the update Jackie, and keep up the great work in Chicago.
