I feel like prisoners are an underserved community, and I want to be able to make a difference with my degree, and so I want to work in prisons after my graduate studies.

Kudos to you, your admirable resolve and your work! I am very impressed. Ive been wanting to be a psychologist for prisoners for quite some time now, i just have no idea exactly how to get started no one in my family has gone to any sort of school, i come from a low income family and feel really lost , im taking all the right courses in order to transfer but i would like to know just how you did it?
