Definition of Leadership: I define leadership as the ability to move a group forward as theur strive to achieve a common goal.  Leadership involves strong communication, a high level of trust and a distince willingness to put oneself out there to take risks.  A great leadership is a person who is so passionate about a specific goal that others can see that enthusiasm in the leader's daily actions as they put others before oneself.  When a leader sincerely demonstrates this fervor, I believe it is inspiring and motivating to the group at hand.

Favorite Thing at Scranton: My favorite thing at The University of Scranotn is the opportunity to become involved in so many different activities.  I am fortunate to work with a very supportive group of faculty and staff who motivate me to pursue what I am most passionate about during my time at the University.  Having the opportunity to be involved on campus as a varsity athlete and a student leader is truly a blessing that continues to shape my college experience for the better.
