On Students For Liberty: “It would be no exaggeration to say that SFL changed my life. Of all of the organizations of which I have been a part, SFL has had the greatest impact on me. It has opened up countless professional opportunities, allowed me to meet brilliant people, and helped me grow as a person. I am honored and excited to be a part of this community and movement for liberation.”
