First Generation College Student: No

Extracurricular Activities: Last semester I competed in a pageant and I’m part of a dance company. I’m also part of the Granddaughters Club and an alumni organization called the Sister 2 Sister Professional Mentoring Program.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
The pageant really brought me out of my comfort zone. I met a lot of people through that. Also, being in a dance company allowed me to branch out and do dance shows and fashion shows. I feel like if I had not done the pageant or auditioned to be in the dance company, I would not be doing as much as I am. I also have met a lot of genuine people and made a lot of friends who I wouldn’t have known.
