Favorite place on campus: The wǝɫǝbʔaltxʷ Intellectual House. When I was first admitted to the UW, my dad drove me all the way up to campus and we walked around for an hour trying to find the IH. When we found it, he told me “See? This is where you belong”. And it was true. I met my best friend in the IH office a few years later, and now she is my roommate! I even spent my 21st birthday pulling an all-nighter in the IH kitchen, helping to put on the Taking Back the Dinner event in 2019.
