Why did you choose Lake Forest College?

I chose Lake Forest College because of the small classes, the close relationship between students and faculties, and also those good internship and research opportunities college provides for the students. In Lake Forest College, every professor knows your name, where you come from and your hobbies. When you have questions about anything or just want to talk to someone, you can literally just go to professors office during walk-in hours and talk with them.

What do you advocate for?

BLM, Love is love.

Why did you decide to be a First Connection Mentor?

First Connection is important to me because this program really helped me to make new friendships I have today and to meet people with different backgrounds. Also, I got lots of information and support from my mentor about campus life, academics, and resources. Therefore, I want to be a First-Connection mentor and help incoming-students.
