My name is Leticia Prado, and I’m the current Vice President of the Student Council for the 2021-2022 Academic Year at Albizu University. I’m also a first-year student in the clinical psychology PsyD program specializing in clinical neuropsychology. I’m interested in working with the elderly and with individuals experiencing memory impairments. Currently, I assist with research conducted on campus related to neuropsychological testing and the Hispanic population. 
I moved to the U.S. from Brazil when I was about two years old. One of the best things about immigrating to South Florida has been living so close to the beach. I enjoy spending the day at the beach with my friends and family, especially when it’s super sunny outside and there are strong waves. In my spare time, I like to watch Netflix and relax. Lately, I’ve been binge-watching the new seasons of All American and The Walking Dead. Another one of my hobbies includes learning new languages. I’m currently studying to speak Spanish, and I also hope to learn Italian someday.

This year, my vision for the student council is to promote a warm and welcoming school environment to build long-lasting connections with one another and with the university as a whole. This is one of the reasons the student council plans to propose initiatives to increase student engagement and recognize exemplary students’ achievements. Some initiatives we are working on to realize these goals include bestowing certificates of recognition for students who demonstrate achievement in academics, research, and leadership. The student council will also be meeting with the Albizu marketing department to formulate different ways to enhance the university’s social media presence. We intend to foster school spirit by advocating for developing a school mascot and investing in student merchandise, such as shirts, hats, and bumper stickers, some of which will be available at our online school store soon. 

Overall, the student council is receptive to the student body’s concerns and encourages students to reach out to us with any ideas they have in mind to enrich our learning experience at Albizu University.
