Favorite part about IC: “My favorite part of IC is the amazing people that inhabit it. The friendships I have created on this campus are ones that I treasure. IC has allowed me to find friends that understand what it means to be an outsider.”

Favorite Honors seminar and why: “Wonder Women and Lethal Girls: Feminism in Science Fiction and Fantasy. That freshman Honors seminar with Katharine Kittredge changed my life. It introduced me to a lot of social justice concepts and introduced me to people who were passionate about the two things that I hold close: books and justice.”

Coolest opportunity you’ve had through IC and/or the Honors program: “My coolest opportunity through IC has probably been having the ability to work at the LGBT Center through the IC Counseling and Wellness Center. The LGBT Center is a under-utilized resource on this campus that provides a haven for queer students and their allies. Working there has changed my life and allowed me to grow as a queer person and as a general student.”

We’re always looking for interesting students to highlight in our Student Spotlight series.
