About the Psych Apprentice
Eureka Foong holds a bachelor's degree in psychology and media studies from Linfield College, Oregon. A techie, she aspires to communicate the findings of psychological research to the general public. In particular, she finds joy in asking questions about cognitive processes in creativity, motivation, and the effects of media on individuals in society.
The Psych Apprentice blog is primarily designed to be a resource for college and high school students, and people who simply want to understand psychology better. While the author acknowledges her limitations in writing on this topic, this blog's primary focus is to encourage further inquiry into psychological principles. In other words, this blog deepens the understanding of psychology for the author as much as it does for its audience.
Eureka is an accomplished public speaker and the founding editor of The Spark News, a student-run newspaper at INTI International College Penang in Malaysia. In summer 2013, she worked in the Arch Lab at George Mason University under Dr. Rob Youmans as a summer research fellow with the American Psychological Association. She interned for the American Psychological Association in Washington, D.C. in summer 2014.
