Life After Lawrence
“I learned how to think, grow, and find ways to contribute meaning to this world by giving back to these communities that helped me achieve my own goals. The mentorship and leadership roles I assumed as a student at Lawrence were only possible because of the role models and mentors I looked up to when I first got there.”
