Extracurricular Activities: I’m part of our student government, the Carleton Student Association, and have had various roles with that. I have been involved with activism on campus, such as the CarlsTalkBack movement, where people asked for structural change, and Divest Carleton.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience? In what ways?
I think just being part of the activist community in general has had a big impact. I’ve gone on a lot of off-campus trips and organized protests. There is a community of people who know each other and are familiar with each other’s work and that has shaped a lot of the big events throughout my Carlton experience. Having a community and affinity group of people who are similarly minded has shaped a lot of my experience outside of the classroom.
