about me

Plainly put, individuals acquire identities over time, identities whose origins and meanings derive from their interactions with the social groups and organizations that surround them.
~ Psychologists Richard Ryan & Edward Deci, 1977
About multidisciplinarian Mayra Ruiz-McPherson, MA, MFA

In psychology, the self-concept is multilayered and continuously shaped via our shifting relationships with our social groups and the societal norms we imbue along the way.
