Why did you attend Suffolk?

Suffolk had a uniquely welcoming feeling from the moment I stepped on campus as a high school student. I was also enticed by the diversity of the Suffolk community, something that I knew would make for a richer college experience.

What is your most memorable Suffolk moment?

Some of my fondest memories were the times with my fellow resident assistants at 150 Tremont Street. We bonded like brothers and sisters and I still remain friends with many of them, despite everyone being spread all across the country. Those are friendships that will last a lifetime.

How has your Suffolk education helped you get where you are today?

I had extraordinary professors who were established practicing journalists. They taught me the basic principles of journalism, which I still use in my work today. I also know that my internship at WCVB-TV opened doors for me, and I was able to do that because my professors prioritized that type of hands-on learning.

Describe the most rewarding aspect of your job?

Knowing that the work we do is helping people who otherwise would be forgotten. I also enjoy visiting the best schools in Massachusetts and meet the amazing teachers and school leaders who run them.

What are your future goals?

To help make my community become better and stronger than it was yesterday.
