Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
Growing up in Hartford, that’s all I really knew in terms of Connecticut and community. Since I’m close to home, it’s cool to get to know another town like I know my hometown. Working a lot with the community of Middletown has been really cool for me and I’ve liked immersing myself not just in the Wesleyan bubble but in the Middletown bubble as a whole.
