Why did you attend Suffolk?

I fell in love with the location of Suffolk as soon as I saw it. There is not a college that is more in the heart of Boston than Suffolk.

What is your most memorable Suffolk moment?

My most memorable moment was the senior breakfast right before the commencement ceremony. As class president, I had to give a speech to all the seniors and their families that morning. Four years of memories flooded into my head and I knew what I had to say. I spoke of all the great things that happened to us and we all stood and toasted each other. It was a bittersweet day.

How did Suffolk help prepare you for the real world?

With its diverse student body and the various programs offered, Suffolk gave me the opportunity to learn and grow. It prepared me not for a career, but for life. It instilled in me the importance of community and working hard to achieve the best.

How did you first develop an interest in helping others?

I have always had a passion for helping people, and I will drop whatever I’m doing to help someone else. Each job I have had involved helping others and I will continue doing so in everything I do.

What are your future goals?

Right now, my goal is to complete my master’s degree in teaching and go on to become an elementary school teacher. Once I meet that goal, I will set a new one.

What are the words that you live by?

“Take the path less travelled.” It’s a lot harder, but so much more rewarding.
