Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
The Presidents Leadership Class (PLC) has had a huge impact as well as being in Student Government. Student Government helped me get prepared for having work friendships and building relationships with people who are co-workers and also may have some authority over you. That helped me understand the dynamics of a working environment. PLC gave me the ability to do actionable leadership and helped me learn how I view leadership and how others view it.
