Describe your Syracuse experience in a couple of words or one sentence:
Orange Family

What attracted you to Syracuse University?
I wanted to experience something I had never experienced before, and I felt that Syracuse gave me so many opportunities to do things that make me happy.

What organizations are you involved with on-campus that you're really passionate about?
I am a Global Ambassador because I am passionate about traveling and helping my fellow students make the most out of their abroad experience. I have also been a part of the Goon Squad since my sophomore year because I want to help welcome students to campus and be a resource if they have any questions or need any help adjusting to the college lifestyle.

What has been your favorite Syracuse experience so far?
During my semester abroad, I went on a weekend ski trip in the Swiss Alps with a group of my classmates. We were able to ski down with stunning views at sunset and I can say that it has been one of my favorite experiences in my life.

What motivates you to give back to Syracuse?
Syracuse has prepared me to be successful in my career and more importantly has taught me how important relationships are. I want to continue these relationships and build new ones to help other members of the Syracuse community.

How has alumni generosity impacted your time at Syracuse?
I have had many opportunities to network with alumni and they are always willing to help fellow Syracuse students.

If you had a chance to thank a donor right now, what would you say?
