What is your favorite part of being a Leadership Intern? My favorite part of my role is the interactions I have with students and with the staff members. I feel like I am always learning something new that I can share with other people.

How has this involvement impacted your time at Brandeis? This involvement has impacted my time significantly at Brandeis. I feel a sense of community within the department and I feel I have many people to learn from and by advised by. I have loved it so much that it has made me want to pursue a career in this field.

Do you have a favorite memory of your time with Student Activities or at Brandeis? I can't choose just one favorite memory! I love having lunch with all the staff members and being able to stop by everyone's office and discuss work, school, and life.
