Why did you want to become an SA? I wanted to be an SA to do what I can to help first-year students’ transition into the university easier and more enjoyable. For me, it is especially important to work to create an inclusive and welcoming environment for everyone to be comfortable in being themselves and expressing all aspects of their identities.

What hopes do you have for the upcoming year? I hope to build new friendships and be more consistent with creating my art.

Is there anything you'd like to say to future LSWA students?
You don’t have to have everything figured out. Now is the time to experiment and try new things--whether that be new art mediums, finding a new sense of fashion and style, or changing your major. Don’t limit yourself and don’t compare your journey to someone else's. We’re all just figuring it out and making plenty of mistakes along the way. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you need anything--even just a friend!
