Graduation Year: 2019
High School Experience: I went to a public school in Grand Rapids, MI with a graduating class of about 250 students. It was a predominantly white community and a lot of people are well off. There was a culture of going to college.
First Generation College Student: No
Major: Global Commerce with a focus on Europe
Extracurricular Activities: I’m a student-athlete, I’m in a sorority and have executive roles in it, and I do Big Brother Big Sister.
Have any of your extracurricular activities had a particularly big impact on your experience?
Being a varsity athlete has made a huge difference in my college experience, both for the good and the sometimes not so great. It takes up a lot of my time and taught me a lot of skills. I also think that Big Brother Big Sister has made a huge difference. You work right outside of Granville, and it’s such a different community than what we have in Granville. Going there every week and interacting with a really underprivileged little girl really put things into perspective.
