“The CMA gave my 4 years at Villanova meaning, and the 5th year [working as a graduate assistant in CMA] allowed me to fulfill an inner passion for helping others.  I am more than excited to begin my journey at Price Waterhouse Coopers, but my excitement is coupled with a deep sadness for the family I will be leaving at Villanova.  Thank you all for such an amazing experience and all of the laughs.  No two days were ever the same, but everyday put a smile on my face.  Continue to inspire the next generation with the same laughter and kindness you shared with me…the CMA is INVALUABLE to the success of countless students and, ultimately, Villanova.”

I am eternally indebted to the Center for Multicultural Center for aiding and guiding me through my four undergraduate years at Villanova. Coming in as an exuberant, somewhat hyperactive, freshman ready and willing to try anything and everything, the center provided me with the focus needed to flourish both socially and academically. I was able to build professional and personal relationships with the wonderful staff and forge bonds that I believe will truly last forever. Being a member of the Center for multicultural affairs was far more than something that preoccupied my time at Villanova, it was far more than an organization I was associated with during my free time. The people at the center became my extended Villanova family. As a member of the center’s family, I experienced many highs and lows, but the support from the center was forever present. The center taught me how to interact in a social settings, how to behave in a professional manner, how to organize an activity, how to be an effective leaser, and countless other skills that are going to aid me in whatever field I ultimately choose to pursue.
