Extracurricular Activities: I’m a camp counselor for Camp Kesem, which is a camp for children whose parents have cancer. I’m a student-athlete. I’m a mentor for Amphibious Achievement, which is a dual athletic and academic mentorship program for high schoolers in the area.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
All three of them have. Obviously, my sport is a huge time commitment but I really love being a part of the team. Camp Kesem is a very big community on campus, so I’ve gotten to know a good portion of campus from all over. Amphibious Achievement is also a big-time commitment and you get to know two high school students pretty well through it.
