My motivation

This is so cliché but so true, too. My family is my biggest motivation. I want to strive to be the best for them. Without them, I would not be the person I am today. I am so grateful that I have loving and dedicated parents and an awesome big brother. The continuous love and support they have provided me has allowed me to move mountains. Well, move hills. Eventually I’ll be moving mountains, though. 

My latest accomplishments

My latest accomplishments are being recognized at Kalamazoo College’s Honors Day Convocation as a member of Alpha Lambda Delta National Honor Society for First-Year Students and the MIAA Academic Honor Roll. Additionally, I have recently been inducted as a President Student Ambassador. 

Next big goal

To conquer Greece! Well, study abroad in Greece.   

Why is choosing your own path important?

Whose path is one supposed to choose, if he/she doesn’t choose his/her own? We must choose our own paths because we are all different. If we all followed down the same paths, then I think we would be considered robots and not humans.  We are the captain’s of our own ships!

Favorite place on campus

I don't have a favorite place on campus. Kalamazoo College is beautiful. Everywhere.
