It can be very difficult for students to publish in scholarly journals. Expectations are high. Most journals are looking for articles with a clear scientific hypothesis supported by original research that substantively adds to the scholarly literature in the field.
You might want to consider giving a paper or poster session at a scholarly conference about your study. Many of these may have special sessions like these for student engagement.
If you are considering submitting you thesis/capstone paper for publication in a scholarly journal the following links may provide guidance.

Think. Check. Submit: a simple checklist to assess the credentials of a journal or publisher.
