 1: Why did you choose Daemen?

I chose Daemen College for several different reasons. First, I wanted a small school because I went to a small high school, with a graduating class of 110. Also, I didn’t want to be too far away from home, so Daemen’s location was perfect, totaling only about an hour and fifteen minutes from home! But, most importantly they had a phenomenal Physician Assistant program which is what I wanted to major in. I knew Daemen was the right school for me the moment I walked on campus for Open House.

2: Where do you see yourself after Daemen?

After Daemen, I plan on going into the workforce as a Physician Assistant. I hope to be working in a hospital whether it be in Buffalo or back home in Rochester, New York.  At this time I also hope to start paying back my college loans! Which I know I will easily be able to due to the outstanding education I got at Daemen!

3: Who inspires you the most?

My grandma is my biggest inspiration. She currently is 92 years old and is the strongest person I know. She has gone through so much in her life, but no matter what every time I see her, she has a smile on her face. She’s taught me that you never know what another person may be going through, so as little as a simple smile could brighten up their day. And why wouldn’t you want to brighten up other people’s days? I love her so much.
