High School Experience: Private high school in Los Angeles, CA with a graduating class of 172 students. There was a culture of going to college.
First-Generation College Student: No
Extracurricular Activities: I do volunteer work around D.C in my free time. Other than that, it’s mostly sports and athletics but none associated with Howard.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience? In what ways?
Tennis did because I played in high school. The reason I came to Howard was to play sports, but right before I came I had knee surgery and wasn’t able to play anymore. Tennis put Howard on my college radar. Doing sports and staying active helps me maintain a healthy body while being a college student.
