Why did you choose Lake Forest College?

Because of the amazing Science program and I love the campus, the people, and the support of the college.

What do you advocate for?

I advocate for any and all discrimination against others but at this moment I am specially focused on discrimination against the black community the unequal treatment they are getting and they have been getting for a very long time. In the past I have also focused on the discrimination against Latinx community and the LGBTQ+ community

Why did you decide to be a First Connection Mentor?

I want to be able to help someone going through a similar situation I've been through and be able to give advice I wish someone had told me when I needed it.

Advice for incoming students
