Thanks for visiting my blog!

I was born in Bronx, NY and raised in Charlottesville, Virginia.

I'm a Senior here at Utica College and I'm involved in waaaaay to many things, because there is just so much to do here and I have a hard time choosing! I'm a 3rd year returning Resident Assistant, I am the Senior Class President, and I am also the Treasurer of Student Senate (just to name a few)

In my spare time (yes, I do have that) You can find me shopping, on the radio @ WPNR 90.7FM, or in a city near you (as I love to travel and meet new people)

You Are The Company You Keep

I must say, the best thing I could have ever done in my three years at Utica College was to get involved—- with the student life on campus that is! One of my favorite organizations that I have joined has to be Student Senate. I am currently the Student Body Treasurer.

Through Student Senate I’ve met some great people–like minded, and just flat out amazing!
I don’t think there is one dull week for me here because of Student Senate. There is always something to do: whether it’s a meeting to attend, budget to create or student concern to attend to. I love it!

Last week, the Student Senate Executive Board was invited to a dinner hosted by the President of the College (Todd Hutton) and his wife Jennifer Hutton to talk about what we’ve been up to lately as an organization.

After a delicious dinner and great discussion in the President’s Office, we all (including the Student Senate E-board and our Advisor Joe Gutowski) decided to take the infamous “Ellen Selfie”….I think we pretty much nailed it!

SENATE SPOTLIGHT: This here is my great friend Farah Hamati! She’s an International Student from Jordan, and I will always thank Utica College for bringing us together–I don’t think I would have ever thought to visit Jordan on my own but thanks to UC, I now have all the reasons to!
