What are you the most excited about this year now that you’ve entered the Jesuit community?: The most exciting about being at Jesuit is the hope I see in the student population. I see the hope in the way students have reached out to me to welcome me as a new face on campus, empathetically asking me how things are going.  If we keep treating each other like that, with respect and love, this world is going to be ok.

If you could make a mix of any natural disaster and politician, what would it be?: I don’t like politicians…. So I guess I will lump them all into one group and call them a plague. 

What are you the most excited about this year now that you’ve entered the Jesuit community?: I have actually been involved in the Jesuit community ever since I graduated from JHS in 2008 so I guess what I am most excited about is being more deeply involved in the lives and growth of the students. Jesuit helped grow and shape me into the man that I am today… I am also excited for the student/staff basketball game!
