Clyniece Hodge – International Intern
Hi! My name is Clyniece Hodge. I am from Trinidad and Tobago and am currently pursuing an MSc in Child and Adolescent Psychology at the University of Greenwich. As part of my degree, I am required to complete a placement as part of an academic assignment. The University of Greenwich and MovementWorks® have been working in collaboration on a research project. This partnership turned out to be particularly beneficial for me since I was given the opportunity to do my placement with MovementWorks. This was welcome news because I have been involved in dance since the age of 4. Dance is one of my greatest passions together with psychology and working with children. It was exhilarating that I landed an internship that was in line with my passions and interests. Read my blog here.
