What is your motivation to succeed?

As cliché as it may sound my family is the number one reason.

Tell us something most people don’t know about you.


What are your long term goals?

I want to return to school to get my masters in social work and human resources. Hopefully work for a nonprofit or any organization/job I am hands on making a difference. 

What does EOP/MAP mean to you?

EOP/MAP is the reason why I am in college and graduating at that. The staff, peers and resources that this program has to offer has made me a better person and taught me lessons that I will remember for the rest of my life. EOP has given me the opportunity nobody else would have and for that I am eternally grateful. 

What’s your most invaluable experience at Purchase?

Everyone who has entered into my life at some point and has made an impact whether good or bad. But especially my friends I have now and will cherish forever from early mornings to late nights helping each other get through semesters and life because without that motivation and help I would not be graduating.
