Students of Loyola: Mikalina Belmonte

Students of Loyola: a take on the very exciting, emotional, and raw, “Humans of New York.” We want to capture the students at Loyola in a way that has not been done before. We want people’s joy and struggles to be out there, without forcing anything too much.


Meet Miky Belmonte:

What is the biggest obstacle you've overcome?

"I’d say the biggest obstacle I’ve overcome within this past year is thinking I’m not good enough. This was a thought I’d think about almost everyday. However, through joining Kappa Delta I’ve been able to meet some of the most encouraging girls, that uplift me and allow me to believe that I am good enough and give me the confidence in myself I’ve always been lacking."


Can you describe one person or one event that has helped shape you into who you are today?

"As lame as it sounds I’d have to say my little sister has shaped me into the person I am today."


Where do you find inspiration?

"I’m apart of Best Buddies here at Loyola and I’d say one of my biggest inspirations is my buddy Paul. Paul is one of the funniest, loving, and kind hearted people I know. He inspires me to try my best at everything I do and ensures me that I can do anything I put my mind to."
