My name is Alice Allen. I am 20 years old, from the West Midlands, England. I am currently a third year undergraduate Psychology student at Manchester Metropolitan University. My interests lie in Cognitive Neuropsychology, as well as Clinical and Developmental Psychology and I hope to become a Clinical Neuropsychologist one day (I think!).
I am very new to the blogging sphere, and I wanted to become a part of it perhaps just like why anyone blogs – because they have something (or some things) to say and they want to be heard. Prominent American author and blogger Seth Godin is quoted as saying “I blog because I don’t really have a choice. The ideas in me insist on being shared, and this is the least painful way I can find to do it!” which sums up blogging perfectly. Or at least my reason to start.
Therefore, I wanted to create a Psychology blog. One that encompasses, well, all things Psychology (for instance, memory, intelligence, social influence, research designs…). I am relentlessly enthusiastic about Psychology, and what has been found in this domain is endlessly fascinating. This blog is here so I can share all this interesting research and more, to trade and share ideas about Psychology with the community. My other focus is to also help students who are looking for a career in psychology about what it means to be a student, useful techniques for exams and projects, as well as providing informative resources about career guidance.
