Not many students win program awards in two concentrations, but Arielle received the honor in both biology and criminal justice. For as long as she can remember, she has been interested in forensic science and the way it is used to help determine the truth.
As a student at Becker College, Arielle was involved in the Student Government Association, serving as president of her class in her sophomore, junior, and senior years. She was the recipient of the Outstanding Senior Award for 2010-2011 and the Outstanding Contribution to SGA award in 2010-2011. She was also a member of Alpha Chi, a resident assistant, and co-manager of the Becker Fund.
Additionally, she worked as a case management unit intern at the Massachusetts State Police Crime Lab, in the Forensic and Technology Center. In the fall of 2011, she began a master’s degree program at the Boston University School of Medicine, in biomedical forensic science. She aspires to be a criminalist—someone who collects and analyzes crime scene evidence—utilizing skills in all realms of forensics, ranging from testing and identifying DNA and other trace evidence, maneuvering in a courtroom, and disseminating different types of evidence.
