Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience? In what ways?
Being in the Multicultural Greek Council, being an RA, and being part of the Human Rights Program played a really big role in my college experience. Being an R.A. helped me find my initial place on campus and made me feel more included because it was one of my first leadership roles at SMU. The Human Rights Program and the Multicultural Greek Council are where I found people who thought very similar to me and aligned with my interests.
