How Do You Raise Up?


"Like many of you, balancing academics, social relationships, and personal health can feel very overwhelming at times, but there are a few activities I do at GWU that help! With my love for dance, I joined the GWU Bhangra team to engage in physical fitness and to find an outlet to de-stress. I've met some of my closest friends on my dance team!"
