Why did you choose CA?

I chose CA because, for the first time in my life, I witnessed students who chose joy every day. On my first visit to campus, I saw friends holding hands and studying on the quad. Their happiness was and is constantly evident.

How would you describe common trust?

Radical empathy.

What is the best class you’ve taken at CA and why?

Advanced Environmental Science Human Ecology. Kiley is one of my favorite teachers; she is unbelievably passionate about sustainability and justice. My human ecology class was my first look into fast fashion and its human rights violations, as well as environmental abuse. By the end of the semester, I realized that there was something so much bigger than me existing and that I had the privilege and responsibility to fix it.
