Why did you choose Lake Forest College?

Small, friendly community where I can have close relationships with my classmates and professors! I also love that Chicago  is only a train ride away!

What do you advocate for?

BLM, LGBTQ+ rights, environmental issues, gender equality, immigration. 

Why did you decide to be a First Connection Mentor?

I was a mentee last year, and it had such an impact on me. I met my best friend and got to know so many new people, and I want to help give that experience to other incoming freshmen.

Advice for incoming students

Kinda cliche but BE YOURSELF! being able to express myself, grow into myself, and really be whoever I want to be helped me settle in at college and find people who are like me. Take these years to figure out and enjoy yourself!
