        Indiana is a second year currently working towards a double major in Psychology and Law, History, and Culture at USC. She is most interested in the intersection between psychology and law, particularly how they interact to shape society. Her happy place is within three feet of the nearest bookshelf, and she most likely has a children’s song stuck in her head at any given time.
