My favorite part of UCSD?

The beach. Also how driven and inspirational all the fellow students are

 

How have you grown as a leader?

I've grown as a leader by becoming more aware of the issues our generation is facing such as the gender inequalities and racial discrimination that plague our society

 

Why is it important to get involved on campus?

It's important to be involved on campus because there is so much you can learn during your college years that you can't learn from a textbook. This is your community and you should give back to it in any way you can. Also you meet really cool people

In 10 years I hope to either the CEO of a nonprofit such as the Red Cross or start my own nonprofit organization.

 

If you had 1 wish, what would it be and why?

If I had one wish i would wish for the ability to be in at least 2 places at once so I can attend all the classes and events I want. Or that college tuition was free haha

Advice for freshmen?

buy a planner and stick to it. It helps you manage your time and acts as a diary so you can remember what you did
