What are you up to this summer?
I am working a few jobs around town and training for the Chicago Marathon
Tell us your favorite workout jams!
Sometimes I run to The Weepies, but mostly I like working out with Sister Hazel, The Bravery and Def Leppard.
What are you most excited about?
I’m really looking forward to working with Ignatian Spirituality Project down in Pilsen. They offer retreats in the Ignatian Tradition to individuals experiencing homelessness. I can’t wait to get to know them and witness all of the good they are up to!
How will your summer adventures add to your Loyola experience?
This summer, I think, will provide a lot of professional and vocational growth that I am really excited about. On the fun side, though, I’m hoping to engage in all that Chicago has to offer, including the museums!
What three emojis best describe your summer so far?
Well, I don’t have a smart phone, so I’m not emoji fluent. I’m feeling a little windswept already, though, as May has been a wonderfully hectic month. So, if there’s an emoji for that. Otherwise, I’m all grins.
Finally (for a little fun), tell us what your go-to Chipotle order is.
Veggie Bowl (because free guacamole!) with fajita, black beans, white rice, mild salsa, lettuce, and salad dressing.
