What's your dream job?
Owner of a concert venue. I want to change the way that venues are run and how they sell tickets. I wanted to be a doctor when I first got here. I worked for a few non-profits and in a clinic over a summer and realized I just didn’t like it.
What's your favorite musical act?
The 1975, Halsey, and Catfish and the Bottlemen, and my all time favorite is Coldplay. And guess who looked at Super Bowl tickets to see them? The cheapest tickets were $3,000.
What’s a hobby you have to help alleviate stress?
I play the cello, but when I moved to Rosemont, I started playing ukulele. I played it to relieve stress. But then it became stressful to learn to play it. So now I do it only when I have time.
Who have you met at Rosemont that’s influenced you the most?
I met a bunch of different people at Rosemont. Not just different personalities, but also in their cultures. I have friends who are all from India. I have one from Panama and one from Ireland, Liberia, and the Ukraine. I learned that you’re just not Indian, speak the same language and eat the same food. One of my friends is Christian, two are Hindu and one is Muslim and I’ve learned a lot from each one of them.
Hometown: West Chester, PA
Campus Involvement: Pre-Health Club
Do you have a favorite class or professor?
Col. Ringgold and Dr. Preti have really inspired me. All my leadership and ethics courses are more geared toward business and being an ethical business leader. I’ve discovered what makes a good leader and what doesn’t. I’ve learned how to be efficient and forward thinking without being corrupt.
Of what are you most proud?
Trying so many new things. Running cross country even though I knew I wasn’t going to be good. I’ve held jobs throughout college and maintained a high GPA. Traveling to Ghana even though I was really scared. And I’m really proud that every band that I like, I’ve seen from the front row. Including Coldplay.
Who do you admire and why?
Jay Verzosa has always been someone I’ve admired and can always talk to.
What is something that you are most passionate about?
Learning – about concepts, people, being open minded.
Where is the furthest place you’ve been?
What’s your best procrastination thing?
I listen to music to procrastinate. I drive to Wawa to get coffee to stay up to listen to music.
What do you do for fun?
Go to concerts or eat.
What’s your favorite food/junk food?
Pretzel or doritos. I love chocolate mint ice cream and the grapes and cheese from Wawa. I could eat quesadillas and Chipotle every day for the rest of my life.
