Why do you want to go to college? “I want to go to college because I want to be successful, and I want to have an education. I know you can be successful without any college, but honestly, most of the time that success is short term. If you lose your job and don’t have a college education, what are the chances you will get another job as good as the last? With a college degree you can be successful just about anywhere you work.”
Who influenced you the most to go to college? “My parents. I used to question the importance of going to college because my dad didn’t go and he was just fine. I did not know how hard he worked to get there and how easy it was to lose that job and have no way of getting another one as good. When I was told by my dad of how hard it would be if I did not go, and how extremely easy it would be if I could just get through college, there was no reason I shouldn’t. 
Who in ORS has influence you the most? “In all honestly, I can’t just pick one staff member. All of them have influenced me. Whether it be Daniel for the SAT prep, Destiny for scholarship applications, or Dustin pushing me to apply to more than just one college, or anyone else in the program pushing and arguing me to do the best I can do. They all influence me and pushed me to be who I am and what I am today.”
Interesting fact about you?“My favorite superhero is Spider-Man.”
