I lead a diversity/identity activity today at freshmen orientation and we asked students about their top three “identifiers” – how they view themselves. I usually tell the students mine which are being a female, having lost my dad, and that I’m a runner. This week I decided to have the students try and guess what my three were. I got that I was from New York, I like orange, I’m bubbly. Then one guy (who is on the Auburn Baseball team) says you’re athletic.
A D1 athlete referred to ME, ME as athletic!!!
Made my DAY!
