Why did you choose Daemen College?

While visiting Daemen, I was pleased to see such a tight knit community. I was also excited about the diverse amount of student activities, small classes, and easy access to professors. 

Why did you choose your present major?

I decided to become a psychology major because I enjoy learning about the effects that experiences, beliefs, and social factors have on a person's behavior. I want to go into the medical field and believe that learning about people around me will enhance my ability to assist others. 

What clubs or organizations have you been a part of at Daemen? What kinds of things do they do?

I have been a member of the dance and step teams at Daemen College. I'm also a multicultural ambassador and president of the African Student Association.

What is your favorite campus hangout? Why?

My favorite hangout spot is in SMART Squad. As an employee, I am constantly meeting new people regardless if I am working or not. I find pleasure in discussing experiences at Daemen, our diverse backgrounds, and goals in life while I assist students' technology issues. 

What are your plans after graduation?

I plan on attending medical school.
