Sexual Orientation: Queer
High School Experience: Public charter school in Sarasota, Florida with about 247 students in the graduating class. There was a culture of going to college.
First-Generation College Student: No
Major: American Studies
Extracurricular Activities: I’ve written for a student publication called the Georgetown Voice. It’s a news, arts, and culture magazine.
What impact has the Georgetown Voice had on your experience?
I’ve met some of my closest friends through the Voice. It’s a good community. As a whole, Georgetown has a stereotype of being professional and business-focused, and there’s not a real natural home for the arts and creative thinkers. That’s definitely changing, but I think the Voice has helped me connect with like-minded people who may want to go into fields that I want to.
