My name is Brianna Linden and I am currently a junior at Newtown High School in Newtown, CT. I have had a longstanding fascination with science and its use in problem solving. In particular, I have been interested in psychology, the science of behavior and thought, and forensics, the scientific detection and study of crime. These interests have led me to a goal of becoming an FBI Profiler. A profiler applies the science of psychology and forensics to investigate serial and violent criminal behavior. My internship at TAF is helping me to foster these scientific interests in violent and criminal behavior and serves as a beginning to my long career path. I am very excited to be a part of this wonderful organization. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my friends, attending my dance classes, and participating in the Best Buddies and Dance Buddies programs.
