I chose Daemen because it is a school that holds everything I would want in a college. With a small size you are able to meet people who turn into family, and form a very close bond with your professors. You are never lost in a crowd and your needs are always appreciated and accommodated, whether it be academic or personal. Overall, I chose Daemen because it was an experience that I wasn't willing to pass up.

What advice would you give to a prospective student?

Get involved! Don't be afraid to try new things and meet new people, you never know who or what you will find when going outside of your comfort zone. Maybe even do something that scares you!

Going to Blue Madness and getting to support our men's and women's basketball teams!

How has Daemen changed or shaped your life?

Daemen has allowed me to find the type of person I want to be moving forward in life, I am more confident in who I am and who I could be now more than ever. Daemen helped me find the stepping stones that I needed to move forward in the direction of success.

Who inspires you the most?

My mom hands down. She is the embodiment of what it means to be a strong, independent woman. She has taught me to live life in search of finding happiness for myself, and to be there for myself when others will not be. I can not imagine life without my mom and am forever thankful for the lessons she taught me in order to find success in a challenging world.
