Sherlan Lord was born in Belize. She came to the United States at the age of 6 and is currently attending Pitzer College as a Psychology major in her junior year.
She chose this field of study because mental health is something that is shunned in her home country. She hopes to change this. Her story is touching in that it shows her determination to help others and the sacrifice of many that support her dreams.
