  • One challenge I experienced in college was while an undergraduate at Temple University in Philadelphia, my father passed.  I found that after my father passed I took my studies much more seriously by taking on the philosophy that life can be short.  We need to make the most of it.  Also, while at Boston University,  I encountered several challenges with professors.  It took quite some time and effort, but I pushed through and graduated despite these teachers' lack of effort.
  • I am a Greyhound Connection Mentor because I want to help and support students who may feel a bit overwhelmed, or those that need help with challenges.  Many of our faculty have experienced challenges and are wonderful resources.  Personally, I simply would like to help in any way I can.
