Major: Comparative Literature
Extracurricular Activities: I managed two on-campus coffee shops, I participated in Calligraphy, a couple of book groups, and I also led a music booking group for gender minorities in the music scene.
Have any of your extracurricular activities had a particularly big impact on your experience?
All of them. A streamline for most of them was meeting people. Reed is fairly small and I’m pretty social, so I don’t have a hard time meeting people, but I still feel that each of those extracurricular activities and jobs helped me identify a group of people with similar interest. They also taught me a lot. I had no experience with music booking before doing Angel Booking. I had a little bit of coffee experience before I got hired by the coffee shop, but I didn’t have any experience as a manager.
