"The biggest value was students being able to understand their identity and the role it plays as they begin their journey at Berkeley. I think the presentation helped to set up the experiences they would get at Berkeley and for them to start thinking about where they might find their community and the challenges they might face. I enjoyed the breathing exercise to get students in the mindframe of the conversation that was about to happen."
