Extracurricular Activities: I’m in an improv comedy group, I mentor girls at the local middle school, I’m on the club ultimate frisbee team, and I do a lot of with different political activist groups on campus.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
The political work and the improv group both have. The improv group is a really small, intimate community and it’s been a great way to meet people, structure my Bowdoin experience, and try something new. The political activism has been a defining part of my first semester. Susan Collins, a senator from Maine, was one of the deciding votes in the Kavanaugh hearing, so a bunch of us went to D.C. to protest. The political activism has also helped create my social groups.
