Why did you want to be part of Notre Dame's Orientation Steering Committee?

I wanted to help give students a good first impression of life at Notre Dame and of the great city of South Bend, Indiana.

What is one of your favorite guilty pleasure songs or artists?

Ed Sheeran, all day (specifically Wayfaring Stranger). He's my workout playlist. Enough said.

What is the one item that you brought with you to college that you were really grateful you decided to pack?

Not my "electric skateboard", but my skateboard. I brought it just to hang up as art. I taught myself how to ride in the Saint Liam's parking lot, & now I board everywhere. I can get anywhere on campus from my dorm in less than one Ed Sheeran song.
