Q&A

Where do you get your motivation to succeed?

I get my motivation from my Mom. She did everything she could to help me get to Bryant. She is such a strong woman that always knows exactly what to say. I can go to her for anything and everything.

Which destination or event has most shaped who you are in life today?

Growing up, my dad was battling an illness which he eventually lost the fight too. Throughout his battle, my mom was hardly around because she was doing everything with him from doctors’ visits to extended hospital stays. As a result, I was forced to grow up at a younger age than most people, teaching myself many life lessons that most were taught by their parents. Looking back, I have found that while challenging at times, those events have shaped me into the strong, independent woman I am today.

During my off time, I am most passionate about…

Being healthy. I really enjoy going to the gym and cooking healthy meals for myself.

What is your dream car?

Definitely an Audi. It doesn’t matter which shape, size, or color, I think all of them are amazing. I am not a car person, but every time I see and Audi drive by it catches my eye.

What is the most exciting destination you have ever traveled to?

Malaysia was the best place I have ever traveled to. Going in I didn’t know what to expect, however I was pleasantly surprised. What I enjoyed the most about this trip was getting to experience a different culture. Everyone there went out of their way to welcome me in and make me feel like I was one of them.

Where is the one place you want to travel in your lifetime?

If I were to pick one place in the world to travel to I would pick rural Africa. It would be a huge wake up call. It seems that everyone there is so appreciative of one another. I think it would make me realize how blessed I am to have everything that I do.

What is your favorite thing about Bryant? 

I love that you get so much real world experience here. I talk to my friends at other schools and they seem to have not decided on a career path. They don’t have relationships with their professors like we do and they don’t have places like the Amica Center to help guide them.

If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with that extra time?

I wouldn’t do more things; I would just do everything at a much slower pace. I would take time to really breathe and appreciate what I am doing at every second.

What’s the best single day on the calendar?

The day after I get all my final grades is the best day ever. I feel relieved when everything is over. I no longer have to stress about my performance in the classes I worked so hard in.
