My earliest Marist Memory... How friendly everyone on campus was. There was a lot of amazing energy on campus when I arrived. I also had a great tour of Marist on a beautiful fall day!

When I think of heroes, I think of....
those who have fought and continue to fight for equal rights here in the U.S. and around the world.
One of my favorite movies is... Mrs. Doubtfire. I can watch that movie anytime, anywhere!
My friends would describe me as... Trustworthy, caring, "quirky", passionate.
My biggest mentor growing up was... I really valued my relationship with my grandparents growing up. I really miss them.
If I could go anywhere I would go to... New Zealand...A lot of good friends have gone, and I have a huge itch to check it out!

One of the best things about college is... Self discovery, learning what being independent means and creating your own identity!

When not busy with things at Marist I like to... Listen to great music, run, rock climb (a new and awesome hobby), enjoy amazing food (I love to eat!), keep up on current events, politics, and educational policy, and lastly read all of my gossip blogs :) 

My message to the students of Marist is...Learn to create balance in your life, stay true to your values and always be yourself.
