Why did you choose to attend Lake Forest College?

I chose Lake Forest because I fell in love with the school as soon as I stepped onto campus. Everyone was so nice and friendly, and it felt like home right away.

What campus organizations and/or clubs are you participating in this academic year?

Student Government, United Black Association, UMOJA, ItsOnUs, and Model U.N.

What do you aspire to do after you graduate?

Ideally, I hope to work in the U.N. and help developing countries improve their economic, healthcare, and educational systems.

What's your favorite on-campus activity?

I honestly love just walking around campus on a nice day, and reading in the middle campus quad. I also really enjoy Relay for Life.

What are two random but interesting facts about yourself?

I love pineapples on pizza. And, I once read a 700-page book in less than 24 hours.
