What’s your favorite kind of music? Reggae, rap, R&B, pop, rock. Just about anything, really!

What’s one thing you could not live without? My twin brother

Why did you choose Penn State Behrend? It has all the resources to help me be the best I can be. You get the perfect combination of sports, student life and education.

What do you like best about being a student here? There are tons of resources at your disposal whether you need help with your classes, or are looking for something fun to do.

How are you adjusting to being away from home? It hasn’t been that difficult a task so far since my twin brother is a student here, too, so he’s been by my side the whole time. Plus, I’ve met new friends who have become like family to me so it’s like I’ve made a new home here.

What’s your favorite food from Bruno’s or Dobbins Dining Hall? The chicken wraps at Bruno’s. (Definitely a plus here!)

What is there to do for fun outside of class? You can do whatever you put your mind to. Erie has a lot to offer, and there are also a lot of activities on campus, like movie night and Midnight Bingo.

What are your plans for after you graduate? I plan to get a good job and help support my parents the same way they have been supporting me my entire life.

What advice do you have for students who are looking for colleges? Pick a college in an area where you want to be and where you feel comfortable. Also choose a college that you know fits you as a person. Don't try to adapt to the campus--You should just fit right in.
