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!

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

2.) Treasurer of CALIBER
3.) Intern at the Bridges to Adelphi Program
4.) Student Worker in the Center for Student Involvement
