Have any of your extracurricular activities had a particularly big impact on your experience?
[My sport] is why I’m at the school. I made a very good relationship with the coaches and since then I’ve felt myself growing as a better person and [athlete]. I’m learning how to manage my time better, how to deal with diversity, teammates, and people that aren’t the same as me. I joined the Student Senate this past semester, and since then I’ve been on the Diversity and Inclusion Committee. We work on ways to make the campus more inclusive. We host events and have table discussions around campus.
