We caught up Denver City Lax Alum Jada Bonner who’s in her freshman year at Regis University. We wanted to find out a little about her life as a college student. The following questions were answered by Jada.
What is your daily routine?
Generally I wake up (around 7:00 AM) , get breakfast, go to class, and go to work. I work for a community based work-study on campus called Father Woody’s. After work I go to another class, then over to lacrosse practice. After practice I get dinner with the team, and finish the day with study hall or down time in my dorm.
What’s your favorite class, and why? What majors are you interested in?
My favorite class is Accounting. There’s some other classes I’m excited to take in the future, like Spanish, Philosophy and few other things. I’m interested in majoring in Accounting or Finance.
What’s your favorite thing about college? Favorite thing about playing lacrosse at Regis?
My favorite thing about college is the freedom I have. It’s a big responsibility and it can feel overwhelming at first, but I’ve come to enjoy and embrace it.
My favorite thing about playing lacrosse at Regis is having a team that always has my back. Committing to this team has been one of the best decisions I’ve made.
Do you have any free time? What’s your favorite thing to do in your free time?
I do get some free time. My favorite thing to do in my free time is usually hang out with friends and teammates, or relax and take a nap.
What suggestion, or life lessons that you’ve learned, do you have for younger City Lax participants?
A suggestion for younger City Lax kids is to learn how to reflect on yourself and your actions/behavior early. Whether good or bad, it’s important to learn how to look in the mirror in order to grow into who you want to be. It’s hard to do initially. You can start by writing down weekly reflections.
