What is one of your fondest memories of Buffalo State? 
One of my fondest memories of Buffalo State was meeting some people that are still a part of my life. I didn't think that I would meet such impactful people and we would connect immediately. Buffalo State truly has a great, friendly community.

Were you involved with any on-campus organizations as a student? 
I served as the Co-Public Relations Chair on the Alternative Break Student Leadership Team. I was also a member of the Buffalo State Track & Field team for my four years.Dallas Taylor

How did graduating from Buffalo State shape your future? 
Graduating from Buffalo State shaped mu future because it really set a pathway for me. I didn't have any idea of what I wanted to do when came to college. Through four years, I found and honed my craft: writing. I know what I want to do with my career/life. That's all I really need to know at the moment. I can usually figure out the rest.

What accomplishments have you achieved since graduating from Buffalo State? 
I've been able to land a competitive position as an AmeriCorps VISTA. Through this position, I've also been able to connect with some powerful and successful people which after this year of service, could lead to future employment.

Do you have any advice for current students trying to achieve success after graduation? 
The advice I would give to students trying to achieve success is something that I always tend to say. That advice would be that for each task or job you have, there's a certain guideline there. What you have to do is understand what your job is and understand what you have to do, then do it. But don't let those things chain you down. Let those things sort of inform you then let them free you.
