Future plans:

How has your major contributed to your professional or personal development?

In my study of philosophy, I have become more sensitive to the ethical concerns of others with backgrounds different to my own and I have become more proficient at analyzing and formulating arguments.

What has been your proudest or most significant accomplishment during your Gonzaga career?

My proudest accomplishment during my Gonzaga career is that I did not drop out even when I really wanted to.
