My name is Rozita Alaluf, I’m the new graduate student intern for Museum of Motherhood!
Currently, I am a first year MA student in Clinical Psychology at Columbia University.
Born and raised in Turkey, I received my BCom degree with majors in psychology and
international management at McGill University.
I am also a certified yoga teacher who hopes to draw upon alternative therapeutic outlets in addition to established methods.
My interest in women’s well being started truly early. Growing up in a country that
ranks 123rd in the attempt to close gender gap (among 130 countries worldwide), I
learned at a young age how women might suffer in various ways as a result of the social
order. This awareness, combined with my fascination with psychology, led me to
M.O.M. where issues related to women’s health are discussed openly. I am particularly
interested in the role of spirituality and culture in transition to motherhood.
In this blog, I will explore a variety of subjects related to motherhood and women from a
mental health perspective.
Please let me know if there are any topics you’d be interested in reading about!
