Major: English with a focus on American Literature

Extracurricular Activities: I [have had leadership positions] in Hillel, I work in the Writers’ Center, I sing acapella, and I volunteer as a mentor to a middle schooler through Colby Cares About Kids. Outside of Colby, I [am a leader] of a political opinion magazine.

Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
All of them are very important to me. For me, the Jewish community in Hillel has been really important to me because I took a leadership role as a sophomore, and it helped me make some friends and get some leadership experience. One of my big concerns coming to college was how will I meet friends, and some of my deepest connections come from activities or when I have a similar interest or identity.
