Extracurricular Activities: I’m part of Mock Trial and Student Government, I play Club Volleyball, and I’m part of Second Stage, which is a theater group on campus.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
Mock Trial has had a huge impact on my experience because before I came to the U.S. I never knew it existed, but I saw an advertisement saying, “Do you love debating? Do you love acting?” I thought that this would be perfect for me because I did debate in high school and I love theater, so it was the perfect combination of all my interests and talents. I tried out and was accepted, and only then I realized how serious the activity was and that those who do it are people who want to go to law school and become attorneys in the future. Even though I’m pretty bad, I stuck with it because I love the experience of competing and offered me a lot of insight into law.
