My name is Brittany Nagy, I am a Pre-Nursing major. A few facts about me is that I have volunteered to go out of the country twice (Panama and Costa Rica) to build a basketball court in third world country areas. I also played on a club volleyball team and on my high school team for about 6 years. I was a participant in Lead On last year and I had a blast, I am so excited to be a facilitator this year and have the opportunity to give others a chance to make new friends and become more comfortable with this new chapter of their life.

My name is Grant Helmer and I am currently a graphic design major. I am going into my third year here at UNC. My favorite place on campus would probably have to be Michener library because it is such a calm environment to focus on academics. A fun fact about me is that I always wear knee high socks with crazy designs each day and you can always catch me wearing a different pair than the last time you saw me. One thing I am looking forward to most about this camp is meeting new people and just building a community with others who also want to connect with others.

My name is Jeremy Schaefer and I am an Elementary Education major. I am a junior at UNC and my favorite place on campus is the walkway behind Gunter that goes between Crabbe and Guggenheim. I think the trees there are beautiful. What I'm looking forward to in Lead On the most would have to be meeting my family group for the first time. Everyone, including myself, is really awkward and it's a great chance to get comfortable with each other before Lead On starts.
