2.) Travel to China

3.) Learn a new language

4.) Donate $100 or more to a homeless person

5.) Be a part of a live audience of a show

HC: Congratulations on becoming this year's Adelphi King! How does it feel?

DM: Thank you! I am overwhelmed with emotions right now, but I am truly grateful and honored to be crowned Adelphi King! It was definitely one of the more competitive and challenging, for the student body, to choose a winner. For the most part, I knew this year's court quite well and it made it more enjoyable to partake the process. With this new title, I hope that I am able to be a positive representation of Adelphi and encourage and motivate others to get involved and to stay involved throughout their time here!

HC: What else are you involved with on campus?

DM: Quite a bit! But here are some things I am involved this year:

1.) Senior Resident Assistant in Earle Hall

2.) Treasurer of CALIBER

3.) Intern at the Bridges to Adelphi Program

4.) Student Worker in the Center for Student Involvement

HC: At any given moment, you are most likely to be found where on campus?

DM: Earle Hall RA office. I've been told that I live there, by many residents. I sorta do.

HC: Three words that describe you best are…

DM: Enthusiastic, happy, and easy-going

HC: Any hidden talents?

DM: I can juggle, play the piano, make bird calls, and roll my Rs pretty well!

HC: Let’s hear a random fact!

DM: I can speak two and half languages (English, Spanish and a little Italian).
