“I came to Loyola University New Orleans with the intentions of being ‘my own man.’ I quickly realized that this was not the right attitude. I learned that we are called a ‘wolf pack’ for a reason. It’s important to build relationships, and I depend upon my peers and community to motivate me along the way. With this holistic support, I was able to grow as a leader, make great decisions, and learn more about myself and what I hope to be in the future.”
