Salma Ayaz

Salma Ayaz

Education
MSW, Aurora University, 2017
BA, Sociology, UIC, 2014

Current work
After researching graduate programs, Salma decided on a Masters of Social Work (MSW) because she felt the program best combined her love of psychology and sociology. Salma’s experience with sociology at UIC changed the way she saw the world and has led her down a different path than the one she started on. She currently attends Aurora University where she is working on her MSW.

What will Salma do with her MSW?
Passionate about working with children, Salma is completing a school social work emphasis through her MSW. Sociology helped her realize that because environment can impact one’s actions, working with kids while they are young can help change their lives and their patterns.
