For the last two years, Student Government has been the focal point of my extracurricular life. I'm from Rockland County, located at the triangular southern tip of New York State, about 40 miles away from New York City, and this is my first Semester at SUNYIT. Although I studied Liberal Arts at my previous institution, I'm now a Computer Science major. I formerly attended SUNY Rockland Community College where I began my tenure in Student Government early into my second semester. I first served in the position of Freshman Senator, and in my second year I served as Sophomore Senator. Although I am a junior, I'm proud to be representing the Graduate Class. I look forward to continue serving this community and the Student Association for the duration of my college career.

I am currently an accounting major. I am also a Utica local and graduated at the top ten percentile of my senior class at Thomas R. Proctor High School. Student government is something I always aspired to be involved in. Now that I am, I plan to carry out my obligations as a senator to the best of my abilities. As a senator, I vow to advocate for the concerns of the students of SUNYIT and to provide them with a higher quality of campus life in no other manner than an ethical and integrable one. Something that I go by in life is in the wise words of Napoleon Hill, "Whatever the mind of a man can conceive and believe, it can achieve".
