Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
I’ve been involved a lot of the National Society of Black Engineers because I relate with all the struggles of people in that club. The population of Black students is not that big at UCLA, so they need all the help they can get. It’s also just a good club to be a part of because they do a lot of community service and they focus on academic excellence as well. [About 3% of undergraduates are African American.]
