We've got none other than my roommate, Leo Fahey. What, You're you, Leo? I'm going to my junior year now. What exactly you're studying? I'm studying government with concentration and international relations. What made you what made you choose government? Well, I've always liked head a sort of fascination by the bureaucracy of government. My grandparent's sort of raised me and they always They're the kind of people that you know are self reliant. Hate the government, kind of people are going to government, try and change their minds. Who there? They don't believe in the government. Hopefully, if we have more people like you in the future, will will have a better government. So with that being said, why choose Suffolk for that? Well, I had to choose between three cities for government. I think there's only really three cities that matter. Boston, New York and Washington, D. C. I didn't feel like going to D. C. Because it's a bit far for me. I went to New York and I just felt out of place there. You know, it's right downtown, but it doesn't feel like you're trapped there. It doesn't feel like you're overwhelmed at all, Not to mention all the federal buildings are right there outside of Suffolk. Pretty much all of my internships have been within a 10 minute walk of Suffolk Main Building 73. With that being said now, with suffering, what would you say have been some positive experiences for you? Well, I do think that the community is a really positive experience as an international relations major. I more interested in, like other governments and different cultures and how they impact us relations. It's sort of learning their guides to try and emulate them. What works and what doesn't in U. S government. Um, the international community at Suffolk has really helped me understand other countries better. It's also gave me a lot of friends over the way. You see yourself using this international community and Suffolk's teachings of international politics and what not help you out in your political career in the future? Yeah, I've made plenty of friends that are sort of in the same boat as me where they want to, you know, like, try and go into local government or, you know, state government, where they're more focused on emulating what works in different countries and stuff. I do feel like the education that I'm getting itself IQ is more of a worldview rather than just a state centric view. When you're not studying world relations and politics at Suffolk, what else do you find That stuff it provides you in terms of downtime and extracurriculars? Um, well, right now I'm a part of the radio club. I've written an article or two for the Suffolk Journal, and I've also participated in the video. Uh, I do feel like Suffolk has a lot of extracurriculars. I do think that, uh, the ability that you can if you only have, like, five people that you can start a club. I do think that something really tries to give back to its students rather than just put the money back into their paychecks. Really? What would you say are some downsides of something? Um, I do think that the government major is kind of, uh, like, just Suffolk's focus. I talked to a lot of people with different Major is they feel if they're not a government major and there's sort of pushed to the side, Uh, I do think that, uh, stuff it can do a lot more forest. I mean, just the fact that, like we just got a president after, like, six years, uh, really showing that, like, something kind of takes a while to get to things. Um, But overall, I do think that subjects a good institution, and I really enjoyed being there. The last thing I've got to ask you is for freshmen coming onto something. What advice would you have for them? I would say Try and get involved as many clubs you can, but don't get overwhelmed. In my freshman year, I was really overwhelmed with the amount of coursework and clothes that I was in, which caused me to dip out of both of them. I wish you the best of luck in changing the world and becoming the next president.
