Why did you choose Lake Forest College?

I wanted to be close to Chicago and the people I met during my visit were passionate and dedicated to their work.

What do you advocate for?

I advocate for true equity. I am more educated and
well versed on topics such as whiteness, gender-based violence,
mental illness, and LGBTG+ erasure, and I have been spending a lot of my summer furthering my depth of knowledge about abolition.

Why did you decide to be a First Connection Mentor?

I appreciate the opportunity to mentor younger students as they learn about LFC and the
specific issues we face on campus. I feel that we can all learn a lot from each other in this
space and I am happy to be allowed a leadership position within it.

Advice for incoming students
