About Alvalyn Dixon-Gardner

Hello everyone! My name is Alvalyn and I'm a first-year student at Tufts University. I intend on majoring in Clinical Psychology with a minor in Child Studies and Human Development. My research this summer will focus on how stereotypes, misrepresentation, and instances of erasure within the media impacts the socio-emotional and mental health of adolescents. The goal of this research is to see what has already been done and where we can go from here. Outside of academics, I love to read and listen to music. If you ever have book or song recommendations, let me know.
