Johanna Rocha - Applied Psychology
I want to work as a counselor once I complete a master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling. I want to work with people who have experienced domestic violence and any kind of trauma in their lifetime.
Tell us a little about yourself and your life:
I am originally from Colombia. I moved here in 2011, and I did not know any English when I arrived. I enrolled in the English as a Second Language (ESL) program at Hodges, which I completed in 2012. I am currently pursuing my bachelor’s degree full time while also working a full-time job. My education is one of the most important things in my life. I work as hard as I do because I want to be able to help people in need.
What are your hobbies/extracurricular activities?
I like to exercise in my free time. I have a love for shoes, and I enjoy reading and listening to music. I also am an avid soccer and basketball fan!
What has been your favorite class at Hodges University? My favorite class so far has been Assessments and Case Management with Professor Enslen. I feel like this class gave me a plethora of knowledge and skills, which I found very useful not only in my future career, but in my personal and professional life.
Who are some of your favorite professors and why?
My favorite professors include Professor Enslen, Professor Garcia, Professor Calderin, Professor Olivares, Professor Caroline Hofmann, and Professor McCue. Professor Enslen is a very compassionate and challenging professor. Professor Garcia is very knowledgeable. Professor Calderin really believes in her students and is encouraging throughout the entire course. Professor Olivares offers real-life knowledge and examples of the work he does in the field. Professor Caroline Hofmann is practical and realistic in the way she teaches and shares information, and Professor McCue believed in me and my writing when I didn’t believe in myself.
What is the biggest challenge you have faced and how did you overcome it?
The biggest challenge has been the language barrier. Coming to this country and not knowing any English was a huge challenge; however, I overcame it with my passion and desire to succeed.
What does receiving a degree at Hodges mean to you?
It would mean the world to me and would be a dream come true. It would solidify all of my hard work and sacrifice.
