Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience? In what ways?
I’d say they all did. I met a lot of people through them. I’ve met some of my really good friends in Mock Trial, and I’ve also developed skills. Planned Parenthood Generation Action helped me get involved in the community and the causes that I’m interested in. The research team shaped my academic and extracurricular experiences as well.
