I decided to become a peer advisor because I thought there was something about all of those seemingly silly things that really brought a community together. Being a peer advisor and being in a position to actually help bring a community together over a week was really incredible. You have a room of 70 strangers and by the end of your first week you’re supposed to make them have an identity, make them a team and create some sort of cohesion between all of them. And if you can manage to do that, I think that’s pretty cool. I wanted to learn and grow from that experience. I was a cluster leader and it was very interesting to be in a position of leadership when you have no levers to pull — you’re leading a team of people who are just doing it for the love of it, and the only lever that you have is that you all feel very passionately about the program.
