My motivation

My motivations in life are all energized by others. My family, friends and the less fortunate all give me reasons to work hard everyday. These people are all close to my heart and drive me to be successful. It is my duty to take advantage of the opportunities I have been blessed with, so that I can have the continued ability to help others.

My latest accomplishments

This past summer I accepted an internship position for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan working in the Product Development and Implementation Department.

Next big goal

My next big goal consists of graduating this upcoming May with over a 3.9 GPA, and helping the Saints baseball team win the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference.

Why is choosing your own path important?

Choosing my own path is important to me because I get the opportunity to pursue my passions. By pursuing my passions and accomplishing my goals, I can truly live a satisfying life. It is important to be happy, and choosing my own path will give me the ability to live a selfless, happy lifestyle.

Favorite place on campus

The baseball field and weight rooms.
