2016 The Selfless Leader


What makes you a Difference Maker?

I believe what makes me a Difference Maker is the fact that I live my life in a way that tries to promote the well-being of others. The needs of others come before my own in many areas, not because they are better or vice versa, but because we are all a part of the same world and all our lives are connected in some way. Making a difference may be hard and you can never go through it alone. That is what being a Difference Maker is about, knowing there is more than just your own future, but also helping others succeed in theirs.

Campus Achievements:

What is your Dream Career?

My dream career/goal in life is not to make money, but to be a mentor for the younger generations to ensure that I can promote and enhance their mindset and abilities for future life to come. I want to be able to influence positive and successful decisions that not only benefit them but also their peers, family, community, etc.

What was a Defining Moment at UM-Dearborn?

My most defining moment at UM-Dearborn was joining Tau Kappa Epsilon. I say this because if it was not for this fraternity I honestly would not be the person I am today. This fraternity has instilled many new morals and values in my life which I live by everyday now. Love, Charity and Esteem is what we live by and devote our lives to. Besides values, Tau Kappa Epsilon has truly opened me up socially and professionally. Without this organization I do not know where or who I would be today.
