What's your favorite way to be creative?

It's hard to choose, because I'm the kind of person who does a million things at once! I would have to say music. I love playing in a group and am really grateful for the ensembles I've been a part of at Michigan. Music is always a great emotional and creative outlet, as well as a social tool. I am always excited to find more music things to do on campus! 

Why do you love LSWA?

LSWA is an eclectic and goofy group of creative folks — students and staff alike. This was the first community space I entered at Michigan against the backdrop of the 2020 Covid-19 Pandemic, and I would've had a much harder time finding friends and creative spaces without it. I love the way LSWA brings students from all different backgrounds together through their shared interest in the fine arts, encouraging students to build bridges and learn.
