Extracurricular Activities: Rock Climbing, Kickboxing, part of Swarthmore Asian Organization, and I’ve done research with professors.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
Kickboxing and Rock Climbing are things I do with my friends for personal enjoyment. The Swarthmore Asian Organization has been a good experience because my first semester here I [worked for the club] which helped me learn how clubs at Swarthmore work. The semester after we shifted the club’s focus from a social organization to a political organization, so that was also a good experience for me.
