Have any of your extracurricular activities had a particularly big impact on your experience?
I really like tutoring, which is why I keep on doing it. I like to help people, especially through Squash ACES, because a lot of the students, [who come from lower-income public elementary schools], don’t typically see people like them going to college. I think it’s really important to have a role model who is more of a reflection of who you could be rather than just a wall. Through the program, I help them with English, Math, and then later on I help with college essays.
