Extracurricular Activities: I’m involved in College Democrats, Student Government, the Young Democrats of America, and I’m in Greek life.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience? In what ways?
College Democrats and the Young Democrats of America have. One of the reasons I came to Richmond was that the school is inside the state capital. I knew I wanted to get involved in politics, or maybe Virginia State politics. I think those organizations have had a lot of opportunities where if you want to get involved you’re able to. At the same time, there aren’t many people who are super driven to go right into politics. There’s a small group of us that’ll go to conferences throughout the nation, have gotten jobs on different campaigns, and have even started political action committees.
