Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience? In what ways?
Dance marathon has provided me the most personal growth. It’s for a great cause, and you meet a lot of people who are inspiring, both those dancing and most importantly the kids. You’re working for a cause bigger than yourself, which is the main goal. Sharing all the stories about the people who go through hardships that are more difficult than yours is humbling. In terms of professional growth, I’d say the Accent Speakers Bureau has been great. Working for the student-run PR firm in the College of Journalism called Alpha Productions has provided me a lot of real-world, hands-on experience.
