Today the RA/CA spolainatlight is on Laina Wydeven, a history major. In her free time, Laina enjoys drawing, reading, playing video games, and being in the company of friends and family.

This is Laina’s third year as an RA and her favorite part of this position is helping residents form strong connections to the UWGB community. Laina attributes her biggest accomplishment to running the mural program, which allows residents to paint a mural in their hall.  “Being an RA has taught me to have confidence in myself and confidence in others around me. I can definitely say that over the years of me being an RA I have learned that making mistakes is okay, so long as you learn and develop from them.” Laina said.

Laina also shared her favorite memory from her time on staff. “One of my favorite memory from my time as an RA would have to be when I turned twenty my first year on staff. I thought that I was going to a meeting that was scheduled last minute but the staff members of Phase 3 threw me a surprise birthday party instead. That was one of the best birthdays I ever had, even though I had an exam the very next day.”

Thanks for all you do!
