Why did you pick RIT/NTID? I chose RIT for the services/accommodations for the deaf and hard of hearing that I will not find at any other college or university.

Clubs/Activities: Vice President of the RIT Dodgeball Club.

Hobbies/Interests outside of athletics: Volunteering at a summer camp for deaf and hard-of-hearing campers.

What’s the best part about being here as a RIT/NTID student-athlete? I have interpreters at practice if I need them whenever my hearing aids break, which has been known to happen from time to time.

Favorite on-campus food spot: Salsarita’s

Where do you do your homework? Either in my room, or at my friend’s apartment. On some occasions, I will occasionally do homework at the library if it is a group assignment.

If you were stuck on an island, what three things would you bring? Large pocket knife, large water bottle/container and rope or fishing net.

Hidden talent: I can solve a Rubik’s cube in under a minute.

What’s your life motto? Don’t let past failures affect your potential to improve. Use those failures to push yourself to excel.
