First year English major Aliesha describes herself as "able to listen to what people have to say, but always stand up for what I believe in or share my opinion if needed." A good listener who nonetheless knows the importance of forming her own ideas, Aliesha says she may "walk around with a confident smile," but she is still "aware that there is plenty of more to learn."
Coming to Daemen from the Bronx, Aliesha observes, "I've always been able to communicate with other people very well and even on a deeper level than some of their closest friends! In fact interacting with others is another drive of mine because I am constantly encouraging others to go for what they want or even there to simply cheer them on. It's what I do, I love to see other people excel as well as, be happy myself."
She adds, "I'm always aiming to be better. I never stay in the same place for long. I can adjust and am willing to adjust for the better." Her positive attitude and eagerness to learn will be great assets as she begins her first year of the English program, and we look forward to giving her a warm welcome.
