Extracurricular Activities: I [had a leadership position] in Asian Students Association, I was a model in the Lunar Gala, I’ve been dancing in a dance showcase called Dancer’s Symposium, and I work at a bar.
Have any of your extracurricular activities had a particularly big impact on your experience?
A lot of students come here and are strictly focused on academics, the Lunar Gala and Dancer’s Symposium really helped me destress and not think that academics are the whole world. I really liked having things that were in my life that were not focused on school.
