Why did you choose Lake Forest College?

I chose LFC because it was a small private school that was close to my family.

What do you advocate for?

A few social justice issues that I like to advocate for are racial equality, pro choice,  LGBTQ+ rights, immigration and climate change. 

Why did you decide to be a First Connection Mentor?

I was inspired by my mentors Jenny and Zora that I had last summer to become a mentor myself.

Advice for incoming students

As a minority, you should never question your intelligence and feel intimidated by other students.
