Extracurricular Activities: I’m a student-athlete, on intramural teams, and I do a Street Outreach program handing out food in Philadelphia.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
My sport has dramatically shaped [my experience]. It takes up most of my free time and requires time management. It’s impacted my friend group because I spend a lot of time with the kids on the team, which becomes a lot of your social area. I workout and take care of myself, which I wouldn’t have done nearly as much otherwise.
