I want to be an astronaut. I’ll scream this from the rooftops, but you might ask ‘how many astronauts come from the University of North Florida?’ I have no doubt that my chances of living this dream are high because of my decision to come to UNF. As an Osprey, I’ve studied in Greece, I’ve rubbed elbows with professors in the Chemistry Department, I’ve shared UNF’s life-hacks with many freshman as an Orientation Leader, and I’ve grown as a leader in Student Government. I love UNF because I am being transformed into a man who can walk on the moon; no other school could do this for me. As the Senate President, I am going to give back to this school by serving all of you. Say “hey” when you see me on campus!

what it was like being a Senator and was elected the following fall term. Before

I was born in Charleston SC and moved to Jacksonville at the age of twelve. I’m majoring in Economics with a minor in Political Science.

I look forward to building a strong relationship between Ospreys and their student government!
