What is your motivation to succeed?

My family, my best friend Gabby and myself.

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

Before discovering my love for theater and film I wanted to work for marine biologist because I love the sea and I wanted to work with sea animals.

What are your long term goals?

My long term goal is to become a theatre/film director. I want to be able to help my family, specifically my grandma. I want to buy her a house and make sure she is okay. I also want to have a production/theater company for people of color.

What does EOP/MAP mean to you?

What EOP means to me is family. They have been there at my lowest and continue to remind me I can do anything if I put my all into it. They have helped me with classes and have opened their doors to me.

What’s your most invaluable experience at Purchase?

When I became an RA and worked with my residents that was an experience I will never forget; seeing these kids enter college for the 1st time was an amazing experience.
