Houston graduate Shivani Sadhir is aspiring for a career in clinical psychology.

Embarking on an eight-year educational journey, Sadhir wants to be a clinical psychologist so that she can diagnose people struggling with mental illness.

“I got the inspiration from my brother because he is really into that,” Sadhir said.

“I always hear him talking about it.”

Her brother Sameer is 23 years old, has a degree in biochemistry and is pursuing a degree in psychology.

Sparked by his interest, Sadhir took high school psychology last semester and really liked it.

She says it is interesting “the way people think and perceive different things.”

After graduation, Sadhir plans to spend the summer enjoying the outdoors, spending time with friends and doing a bit of travelling with her family.

In September, she will go to the University of British Columbia (UNBC) in Prince George to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree.

“Just because it is close to home I’m starting there,” Sadhir said.

“I don’t know how long I’m staying at UNBC for.”

After earning her bachelor degree, Sadhir will tackle another four years of university to get her PhD in Clinical Psychology.

Looking back, Sadhir says she enjoyed her years at Houston Secondary School and especially appreciated the staff.

“They are so helpful and supportive. You can always go to them for help whenever,” she said.

Looking forward, Sadhir is excited to start a new chapter in her life.

She says she is looking forward to living somewhere new and being close to her brother in Prince George.

“And [I’m excited to study] what I’m really interested in,” she said.
