About me: Hello! My name is Zoe, and I am a third year student in the Interdisciplinary honors program. I just want to say hi and welcome any potential or current honors students, and encourage you to please reach out if you want to talk about honors and/or discuss my experience in the program so far! 😊 I can particularly speak to my experience living in the honors LLC, as both a resident and an RA, as I have been part of this community for the entirety of my experience at UW so far. Beyond my honors experience, I would also be happy to speak about my other academic experiences with the Nursing program and in Japanese language classes.
