Why did you choose to attend Grand Valley?
I chose to attend Grand Valley because I knew it was a well-respected school. I also knew they had a Grand Rapids location.

What was the highlight of your Grand Valley experience?
The highlight of my Grand Valley experience was the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. Just being able to get into the community and mentor somebody formed the whole passion that I have in life today, which is to help people in need.

How has Grand Valley helped you achieve your goals?
Grand Valley pretty much helped me set a foundation for where I wanted to go in life. It helped me not only mature, but also take my life to the next level.

What advice would you give to prospective students?
My advice would be to never give up and don't let anybody tell you that you can't do it. If you know that the risk is 50 percent that you don't succeed, there's also 50 percent that you will succeed. So no matter where your passions are, no matter what your dreams are, always go for those.
