What makes BW distinctive for me? The community is like no other. There are genuine people here who want to see you succeed in all aspects of life.

My hometown: Cleveland

What do I love most about Berea and Cleveland? Berea and Cleveland are a perfect balance. You can take advantage of the million opportunities that Cleveland has to offer while only being twenty minutes down the road in the small town of Berea.

Where would I still like to visit that I haven't already? Brazil

What is the most interesting place I have visited? Nashville

What am I currently reading in my spare time? I am a big article reader. I prefer to read 2 or 3 articles in a day, because they're quick reads. Whenever I read a book, I start with the first few chapters. Then I skip to the last chapter, because I want to know the ending.

What is my favorite movie? "Oceans 11" with George Clooney

If I could meet any historical figure, who would it be and why? The person who invented pizza, because they were speaking to my heart before I was ever born.

What song can't I get out of my head right now? "Mama" by August Alsina

My message to prospective students thinking about the value of college and BW: Allow BW to become a part of your life moving forward. Embrace the different people you will meet and network with in the BW community. I have met a lot of great people, as a student and now as a staff member. I highly recommend you come experience BW yourself. You'll see why it's a great place to be.
