Describe a time you felt socially connected to UCLA

Serving as a New Student Orientation Advisor and becoming involved in the American Indian Student Association on campus have made me feel the most socially connected to UCLA. Through these organizations, I have found my friends, community, and passions. These experiences have helped me find my place at UCLA, as well as reflect on my role as both a student and person.
