My Greatest Supporters

My greatest supporters are my mom, dad, younger brother and grandmother who I always come to for emotional support. They have been supportive of me throughout my entire college experience and education at Saint Marys.

Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

In my Junior year, My suite mates and I decided we needed some new furniture and thought of buying a recliner. As luck would have it, we found a perfectly good recliner an old man was throwing away. In that moment, we decided to take the recliner back to the dorm and clean it up. The look on our RAs face was priceless when we brought that thing home. Luckily this was before Covid.

My Next Chapter

As of now, I have a new job lined up for after graduation that I am excited to pursue further into. In addition, I will be taking more college courses to further more education in the coming future.

Clubs and Activities

I was in KSMC, Gael Gaming and the DnD clubs on campus.

Favorite Quote

"I’m a black man, carrying the stars and strips. Every time I pick this thing up, I know there are millions of people out there who are going To hate me for it. Even now, here. I feel it. The stares, the judgment, and there’s nothing I can do to change it. And I’m still here. No super serum. No blonde hair or blue eyes. The only power I have is that I believe we can do better."
— Sam Wilson from the Falcon and Winter Soldier - MCU series
