Why did you want to become an SA? I had the most wonderful time being a part of LSWA in my first year, and I saw the role that Student Leaders played in every aspect of what made my first year so great - from organizing events to leading weekly clubs, to even having a much-needed shoulder to cry on in a study room in the middle of finals week. I wanted to be that person for the new cohort!

What hopes do you have for the upcoming year? I hope that this year will be as unique as the circumstances demand, and I’m certain that we will be able to channel all our emotions of the last few global pandemic-stricken months into some beautiful form of art - no matter what form it may be.

Is there anything you'd like to say to future LSWA students? I’m looking forward to getting to know all of you, showing you how great the University of Michigan is and creating art with you!
