Elizabeth Martinez

Elizabeth M.

Education: Junior, Psychology with a Spanish minor

Hometown: Miami, FL

Experience with Children: I work on an indoor playground back in Miami with children from 3-12 year old. I also lived with my little cousin since she was born, so I know what it is like to live with and deal with children on a daily basis.

Goals for School Year and Career: My short term goal is to get to know the UNC campus, without getting lost every time I step out. My long term goals include, graduating from UNC with a Bachelor’s in Psychology. My career path within psychology is child psychology so my future plans are built around that.

Hobbies/Fun Facts: I love to read and to explore the outdoor environment on a regular basis. I like to listen to music, it calms me down if I am anxious. I am fluent in Spanish. I cannot stop watching, thanks to my little cousin, Yo Gabba Gabba.

Why did you choose to work at Morehead?: Working with kids has always been a priority for me, besides the fact that I absolutely love to be around kids, my whole career is designed and built around children and helping them in any way I can. Morehead Planetarium gives me a great and exciting opportunity to get hands on experience in what will be my future career.
