She is also involved with Blend, a club for the community of mixed-race Scripps students. While on campus, you can find Isabel starting her day with a morning swim at Tiernan, or studying in one of the many beautiful courtyards. In her free time, Isabel enjoys reading, crochet, and embroidery, and exploring Claremont with her friends.
