Video transcript

- So I never looked at extracurriculars as a way to get into college 'cause that was not my purpose of doing them at all. I actually didn't like when people said, "Oh, you should do a lot to get into college." I always looked at it as, like, what did I like to do, what do I love to do, and I'm going to do it to the best, and that's how I always looked at extracurriculars, so I got involved in so many things because of that, not to get into college. I was in journalism, I loved it, and we would have production days 'til, like, late at night, write articles. I was in theater, and that was just so much fun. I also did a lot of community service with my church and my friends, and that was a really, really great opportunity to be out there doing public service, and all of those really transferred over to what I did later on. Community service ended up running my entire career, both in college and beyond. Drama served me both in college, as I did Drama, and also in extra summer camps when I did during the school year, and then, the last one, journalism, ended up becoming part of my major, so all of that transferred over to what I did.
