Laura Becerra

Forensic psychology is not a popular major, but for Laura Becerra, it is her passion.

Growing up in Bogota, Colombia, a city of 7 million people, she was no stranger to crime.

Forensic psychology is the investigating of why people commit crimes. Two main aspects are researching and profiling. It also includes talking to criminals to diagnose whether they are clinically insane or not.

Switching majors from nursing to forensic psychology was the due to watching the ‘Mentalist’ and deciding to do some research on it.

Becerra’s future plan is to transfer her TCC credits to UTA and graduate in the spring of 2012. After some work experience, she wants to work for the district attorney’s office and later for the U.S. government.
