What I want prospective students to know about Purchase: I want prospective students to know how pleasantly surprised they’ll be if they attend Purchase College. How alive the community is, how engaged we are in various forms of art and culture, how passionate we are in our beliefs and protests, how committed we are to our work.
The reason I became an Ambassador: I love talking about things I am proud of, and I am proud of this school and all it’s done for me.
My favorite spot on campus: My favorite spot is the bleachers by the baseball field. You can watch the sun go down past the trees.
Why I chose Purchase: I chose Purchase because I saw the kind of films that were being made by students here, and how much voice and passion were behind them, and I knew they were the kind of stories I wanted to tell.
My hobbies and interests: I enjoy making films, watching films and TV shows, listening to music, skateboarding, dancing, and photography.
Future plans after Purchase: I want to make films that mean something, but also make money. Wish me luck.
What “Think Wide Open” means to me: Think Wide Open means being open-minded and empathetic to all the unique individuals you will meet, and being inspired by the stories they carry with them.
