Why did you join USG?

Joining the United Student Government was a decision that I thought quite extensively over. I justified it with three main points which were as follows. Firstly, I have always done it, starting in the second grade all the way through high school and hopefully through college. Holding a student government position among my classmates has been branded into me. Secondly, I feel that I am skilled in reaching a wide variety of students. I am easy to talk to, and no matter who you are I can probably find something we can converse about. Lastly, I have a strong desire to help the student body. Being able to contribute to the happiness of students both on a personal, and a school wide level truly interests me. Overall, if you connect these three points, it positions me in such a way where I know what needs to get done, how to do it, and I’ve got the drive to stay persistent. This is what pushes me to continue in Student Government.

What are you hoping to accomplish this year?

My goals as the VP of Gabelli and leader of Dean’s Council are predicated on a simple idea: being the Dean’s council. I want to focus on ensuring that each member of the council understands that they are an extension of the deans, and we all must be experts in this field. On top of ensuring each of our members are dedicated and involved, I want to increase the Group’s exposure on campus and help the Dean’s connect with Gabelli students.

Where are you originally from?

Columbus, Ohio

If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?

To fly! I was a pilot in high school, but to fly without the constraints of a physical plane is probably very cathartic.

My favorite place on Fordham’s Rose Hill campus is…

The lounge in Hughes Hall.

What is your favorite quote?

You’ll seldom experience regret for anything that you’ve done. It is what you haven’t done that will torment you. The message, therefore, is clear. Do it! Develop an appreciation for the present moment. Seize every second of your life and savor it. – Wayne Dyer
