Hobbies/Fun Facts: I have a passion for learning about different cultures, languages and people. I have visited over 86 countries and stepped foot in 6 continents. Some of my favorite activities are snowboarding, board games, Capoeira, salsa dancing, cooking, shopping, video games, tennis and Wallyball.

Favorite things about Saint Peter’s: Location, Location, Location! Saint Peter’s University is close to the best of both Jersey City and NYC. It is exciting coming into work every day. I also love the fact that we have over 36 countries represented in our international student body. That is very impressive and adds to the cultural diversity already found throughout the greater metro area.

Favorite Saint Peter’s moment: Eating at our school cafeteria during my first week on campus. They had a visiting chef from Brazil on campus and the food was fabulous. Our Dining & Hospitality Services gives our campus an opportunity to experience food from around the globe by hosting several international chefs each semester.

Best College Search Tip: Be a smart consumer and don’t rule out any schools until you get an opportunity to meet with your admission counselor. You’d be surprised what schools will do if they are interested in you. Remember, you are just as much of an asset to the school as the school is to you!
