Markayla Shattuck

Student at George Fox University majoring in Psychology

Markayla Shattuck is a sophomore majoring in Psychology at George Fox University. She is on track to graduate in 2017 and hopes to complete a minor in social welfare (social work). Her goal is to get her PhD in Psychology and hopes to attend graduate school in Portland, while interning to gain experience.

When asked what drew her to pursuing a career in Psychology, she said she has always wanted to be a psychologist since elementary school, but also loves learning and understanding the mental functions in individuals and social behaviors. Growing up in a family that was very broken and not a lot of support was given forced her to have to figure out life on her own. School was her motivation and recently finished her freshmen spring semester with a 3.6 GPA. She wants to be the voice for many minorities who don’t feel they can make an impact in the world. Since Markayla experienced firsthand what it was like to be a minority and having the opportunity to go to college on a full ride inspired her to pursue a career in psychology and advocate for minorities. She loves being able to give support to her peers and help guide them on the right path.

When she isn’t trying to finish her school work or looking up which college has the best PhD program for psychology, Markayla is playing softball for George Fox, volunteering around the community, and working as well as interning. She hopes to gain as much experience as possible in the years to come to be ready for graduate school on top of getting prepared for the real world after college.
