Favorite thing to do at Xavier?

My favorite thing to do at Xavier is meet new people and getting to know them and how they want to make a difference. I think that is something so awesome about Xavier. The people at Xavier want to help others and help make the world the best it can be.

Something most people don’t know about you?

My dad works for an IndyCar team, making my childhood very unique in that I traveled a lot more than most people, but also, I did not see my dad very often growing up because he traveled so often.

Best experience you’ve had at Xavier?

The best experience I have had is becoming RA. It brings a very unique perspective to life at Xavier and specifically in a freshman dorm. The transition and experiences of first-year students as they explore and get to know Xavier as home, is fun to see.

If you could rename yourself, what would you name yourself?

I would not change my name. Even though I have such a hard name now, my name is too unique for me to want to change it.

Why’d you choose your major?

I love kids so much. They bring so much light, life, and laughter to the world. Children bring a unique perspective of the world and have so many questions about it. I love hearing the questions that children have and helping them learn more about the world.
