Setting a Foundation to a Life of Connection and Service

I am grateful for the opportunities that Lake Forest College gave to step into my leadership potential. What would the grades and race time have meant without a connection to the community? 


Throughout high school and my first two years of college, I was so involved in my student-athlete experience to the point where I undervalued my connection with others and my community. The halfway point of college was the time that I had to face up to the fact that there is much more to life than grades and race times. 

I applied and earned my first major leadership experience as a Resident Assistant at Lake Forest College. This was a vehicle for developing community building and personal communication skills. Upon becoming inducted to Psi Chi and Omicron Delta Kappa, I grew even more confident as a leader. 

The school formally recognizes twenty-five members of each senior class for outstanding leadership, academic achievement, and service that sets the standard for upcoming generations of students at Lake Forest College. I make every effort to leverage my place in the Senior 25 to serve my community and leave the most positive mark possible during my last year. Leadership development was the most meaningful and impactful point of growth as a Lake Forest College student because it set the foundation to a life of purpose, excellence, and service. .
