Dr. Emily "Emy" Hotez, a 2011 GW Psych alum (Ph.D., Developmental Psychology CUNY) , has moved to the West Coast to begin a new position as Project Scientist at the UCLA Center for Healthier Children, Families, and Communities. She will be conducting research for the Maternal and Child Health Life Course Intervention Research Network-- a national platform of interdisciplinary research focused on designing, planning, and implementing interventions for children and families across the lifespan. This work is funded by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau. Congratulations, Emy!

Not only are our alums smart, they are also stylish. Anibel Ng-Conwell (Psych B.A. '11) was recently named by Washingtonian Magazine as one of the 9 Best-Dressed People in Washington!


Anibel Ng-Conwell studied psychology and fine arts at George Washington University. But out of the classroom, jewelry-making spoke to her. For her brand, Egolord, she designs lightweight statement jewelry: “With pieces I loved wearing, I’d remove them mid-evening because they’re heavy. I decided to make big pieces without compromising comfort.”

Her neighborhood: Reston.

What she’s wearing: “The dress is from Zara; the mock turtleneck is vintage. I could dress it up with higher heels and a leather jacket or dress it down with sneakers and tights. It’s comfortable and edgy at the same time.”


During a semester studying in Bolivia during her junior year, Psychology major alumna Julia Mancini ('18) completed a research project while working with children from from two organizations; one serving children whose parents were incarcerated, the other serving children who were victims of sexual violence. This work resulted in a recently published bilingual children's book. "Alejandra's Journey" is a story of struggle and resilience in finding a place to call home told through a child's eye and made possible through collaboration with these organizations and a local illustrator.

If interested in learning more about Alejandra's Journey or requesting a copy of the book, you can reach out to Julia at:

Congratulations, Julia, on this wonderful contribution!
