When I was a senior in high school, I was able to plan and organize a 5K road race that raised over $10,000 to go toward my school’s sports, clubs and activities.
Talk a little about your role in the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.
The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is an awesome organization that focuses on finding a cure for childhood cancers by creating awareness, raising money and working with leading pediatric oncologists to determine the best, most accurate treatments for patients. For the past two years, I’ve participated in the annual head shaving event. Last year, I became the Lead Organizer and we were able to raise $4,300. This year, my roommate [Giuseppe Chiara ‘18] and I created the St. Baldrick’s of Fairfield club on campus. We’re excited to bring awareness to the Fairfield campus and are looking forward to raising as much money as possible to send to the Foundation.
If you had three wishes, what would you wish for? Why?
To win the lottery, to travel the world and for the genie to have a wish because I feel like no one ever thinks of the genie. What if he doesn’t want to be in a bottle anymore?
Who is your favorite superhero?
Batman, for sure.
