“In the shadows of the Vatican, I served the homeless while learning Italian in my study abroad program. On campus and in the community back in Cleveland, my professors and classmates inspired me to act, innovate, and lead with confidence and heart. John Carroll has taught me how to be a person with passions, who cares about others, and who works to share this with the world.”
