Why did you want to become an SA? I wanted to become an SA because I really enjoyed the LSWA program overall. I had a lot of fun in my club and making friends in the dorm for the semester I was there. I wanted to continue with the program so that I could try to foster an environment like the one that I had as a first-year student. I want to support people’s creative interests and be a leader for new students in a program I enjoy.

What hopes do you have for the upcoming year? I am hopeful that club activities will be successful and fun and that we can make LSWA a fun program to be a part of. I also hope that the year is more normal than the last one was and that people are all able to experience classes as close to normal as possible.

Is there anything you'd like to say to future LSWA students? To future LSWA students I guess I would say to keep trying. I know it sounds cheesy but things don’t always go right the first time, and when that happens you should do your best to keep at it. Art and writing all take time but the more you do it the better you get.
