Why did you choose LEC?

I chose LEC because it is a small school, so you get a great education as well as [the opportunity to] establish amazing relationships with students and faculty.

What do you enjoy the most about being a part of a Learning Community?

The thing I enjoy the most is spending time with people who have the same interests as me, and doing fun activities together.

How has the LC experience changed your career at LEC and beyond?

I have gained a lot more confidence to function in a group of people and to discuss realistic business issues in the world, which is a very important skill to have in life.
