Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience? In what ways?
Rugby played a big role in my college experience. It’s a great group of people that are supportive and is where I became comfortable with my identity as a gay woman. It creates this beautiful community where you have your teammates, but it’s not as much time as a varsity sport. [For me] it’s more of a social thing.
