What is a fun fact about yourself?

I am missing a piece of my thumb due to a weight lifting accident.

What advice would you give to an incoming new student?

Have fun, but do not forget that you are at school. School needs to come first before you involve yourself in anything. So whenever you do something think to yourself; "will I be able to complete my work in a timely fashion and be well rested if I do this?" "Will I be behind in school work if I do this?"

What is your favorite TU tradition or event on campus?

My favorite event is Bashment hosted by Caribbean Students Association. Bashment is basically a night of dancing with Caribbean music. The energy and vibe is amazing, and if you get there early enough there is free Caribbean food!
