Any personal or family stories you want to tell?

I came to the U.S. at age 25 seeking better oppotunities for myself and my family. I was third out of twelve children. My father died at age 50, and my mother died recently at 83. I'm the proud grandfather of two grandchildren.

Any thoughts on working at Wellesley College?

Wellesley is a nice place to work. I enjoy working with students and the other employees.
