What are some of the jobs you held at McDaniel?

No paid jobs.

What organizations were you part of at McDaniel?

SAE and wrestling. I would be a part of Intervarsity, but had schedule conflicting.

How much did you enjoy your time at McDaniel?

My time was good, not great, but not bad. It was a good time, and I learned a lot about life and myself.

Who do you think is/was your best mentor(s)?

Best mentor? My mom mostly and life itself.

What were some of the challenges you encountered and how did you overcome them?

Many but one challenge was being an introvert in a very social atmosphere. I forced myself to be outgoing, but it took a lot of me and my health, so I pulled back and finally realized who and what I am.

What are your plans for after graduation?

I’m planning on teaching, where is still in the works. Just finished an interview with Anne Arundel County.

What is your best memory at McDaniel? 

My best memory is tied between the night I met my girlfriend and my first wrestling match I won my junior year at Fall Brawl.

What advice can you give to those not graduating?

Life gets better after college. I’ve been “adulting” for sometime. It’s harder but much better. Get excited for life. Keep moving keep growing.
