Why did you choose Lake Forest College?

I chose Lake Forest College because it is a liberal arts school, we have an excellent alumni network and psychology program, and also because it was close to home.

What do you advocate for?

I advocate for the Black lives matter movement, women's rights, LGBTQ+ rights, immigration/border crisis, etc.

Why did you decide to be a First Connection Mentor?

I chose to be a First Connection Mentor because in my own experience with First Connection, it brought me some of my closest friends and also created a space in which I felt safe speaking on
social justice issues, and I want to help create that for incoming students as well.

Advice for incoming students

My advice would be to try and find your people and to get involved with things that you feel passionate about or have an interest in learning about.
