Food is the essence of life. I feel cool when I hop on the T and find unique places to eat (preferably things that are baked at Bova's). Being able to explore the beauty of such a historic city is a forming hobby of mine. Attending concerts, sporting events and other attractions is what made me fall in love with Boston and wanted to stay. If you are looking for a cool place, take a walk along the Esplanade, it's my personal favorite.

Dive into the adventure that college has for you. Be proactive, branch out to try something totally out of your comfort zone, and see how God uses that for good. Pick good people to hang around. College has provided me with my ride or die friends who have walked with me through the toughest seasons of life, and pointed me towards Christ. Soak up the fun, get involved, and allow God to transform you to be His vessel for the kingdom.

What advice would you give to an incoming ENC student?
I would tell an incoming student to cherish every minute of their college experience because it goes very quickly. While college will be very exciting and fun, you must make studying a priority. I think of college as this: If you work hard for four years, you're set for life. But if you goof off and just get by for four years, then you're working for the rest of your life.
