Christina Cartwright ‘17, University of Michigan, Undecided/General Biology
From Christina: the picture I attached was my reaction to receiving free food from work (typical).
Hometown and Hobbies:
I’m from Novi, MI. In my free time, I like to crochet, go on the internet, sleep, and incorporate tv show references in my everyday life to the chagrin of those closest to me.
After I graduate, I plan to get a master’s degree in public health.
I liked the forward thinking atmosphere of the campus, plus it’s really beautiful in the fall. (I’m not about this below zero weather right now, though.)
Favorite LEAD moment:
Going to a bowling alley with my mentor last November was AWESOME. Even though I can’t play to save my life, it was so fun to laugh at those who took it way too seriously.
Advice to LEAD Scholars:
When looking for extracurricular activities to get involved in, choose those that really mean something to you, ones that you wouldn’t so much mind spending a lot of your time pursuing instead of halfway joining a bunch of clubs, etc. that you aren’t completely passionate about. In the long run, your time will be much better spent and way more meaningful.
