What is your favorite AKPsi memory?

Being VP Membership for the second greatest class in Alpha Kappa Psi history. (Shout out to my Xi Class!)

If you could go back in time and give your younger self advice, what would you say?

I would tell myself to get to know more brothers. I have been extremely involved at UIC and tended to put AKPsi to the side sometimes. That's something I very much regret.

After leaving Eta Rho, what do you hope brothers will remember about you?

My beard.

What will you miss most about Eta Rho?

The genuineness of some of the brothers in the chapter. I know if I ever need anything I can contact anyone.

What is your favorite quote?

“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”

― Muhammad Ali
