Why did you choose Daemen?

I chose Daemen because of the April overnight trip, which is spending two days at Daemen as a high school student. I fell in love with the welcoming environment. This trip made me feel that Daemen was where I wanted to spend the next four years of my life.

What activities are you involved in on campus?

I am the Vice President of the Multicultural Association, Model UN, and the Daemen College Step Team. I am also a Student Alumni Ambassador and tour guide.

What advice would you give to a prospective student?

Do not be afraid to be yourself because Daemen is a very diverse community, and you will find people you fit in with, without changing who you are.

How has Daemen changed/shaped your life?

Daemen has helped my leadership qualities shine! It has offered me many opportunities in which I am able to work on developing characteristics that I currently lack in, but also teach others qualities I excel in. 

Something I wish more people knew about Daemen is...

I wish more people knew about Daemen in general, and how great it is!

My favorite thing to do in Buffalo is...

Going shopping! The shuttle takes students to various stores in Buffalo, and going to Walmart is one of my favorite places because there is not a Walmart in NYC! I love that I can go to one place for basically everything.
