What is something you didn’t expect about your DC experience?
I didn’t really expect to have all the amazing opportunities I’ve had. I didn’t expect to come in and make such an easy transition. Everyone here makes college life such a great experience. I would not trade my experiences here for anything.
How has Defiance College prepared you for your future?
I feel I have gained so much both inside and outside of the classroom. I am a more knowledgeable and aware person about world issues because of Defiance College. Defiance has made me a professional after presenting at the McMaster Symposium and Global Summit, and I feel I have found my purpose in life because of the people and experiences I have had here at DC.
What would you say to high school students considering Defiance College?
