Winnie Jiang '14

Psychology and Economics

Winnie Jiang graduated from Agnes Scott in 2014 with majors in Psychology and Economics and a minor in Mathematics.  She is originally from Dongguan, a city in the south part of China.  She is currently at Yale University pursuing a PhD degree in Organizational Behavior.  Her research involves investigating the meaning of work, career decision-making, and career transition and development.  She is working as both a research and teaching assistant.  While at Agnes Scott she held several internships, was selected as a Kemper Scholar for the Kemper Foundation national leadership program, and she was involved in research.  She presented her papers at several research conferences and published one of her research papers in the Psi Chi Journal of Psychological Research.  She served as the statistics and research design and methods tutor for the department for several years and for fun entered a national math modeling competition.  She was on one of the teams that won that competition.  Her experiences at Agnes Scott, both inside and outside of classrooms, opened her mind, taught her to listen to different voices, and taught her to be an independent, compassionate, and critical thinker.  In the psychology department, her professors and classmates helped her discover her passion for understanding more about individual behaviors and supported her to pursue this passion with competence and confidence.  Agnes Scott helped her build her identity and offered her a college experience that was truly meaningful and unforgettable.  Winnie’s photo was taken at Yale University.
