I joined SAAC because…: I wanted to make sure the concerns of the student-athletes were addressed.  Student-athletes have a unique experience on a college campus and I wanted to ensure that this experience was as best as it could be.   

In five years, I will hopefully be…:  graduated from a good law school and working on issues that I am passionate about.
