What is your motivation to succeed?
My motivation is, aside from my family, the need to cultivate my mind with knowledge, I believe that there’s nothing more powerful than a person who can formulate an argument or find ways to complete difficult tasks. Education itself is motivating because it allows me to grow.
Tell us something most people don’t know about you.
I study 5 new words a week to better my vocabulary.
What are your long term goals?
I want to be a Historian, I don’t know in what area but I enjoy history a lot.
What does EOP/MAP mean to you?
EOP/MAP means many things, but to me it means smiles, understanding, and support. EOP/MAP is family in the deepest sense, I was able to figure out what kind of adult I wanted to become because there is always someone there to listen to you. People underestimate the importance of being listened to.
What’s your most invaluable experience at Purchase?
The exposure to the many incredible books with authors who are so intelligent. It focused me in to understanding that this is the time to get the knowledge that will mold you as an intellectual.
