WHY I DO, WHAT I DO
"Adrian is driven by the desire to see others achieve. Because of his caring heart, he is always reading and listening to things that will allow him to gain more insight into the human psyche. As he gains more wisdom, he wants to share. He understands everyone is significant and he does his part to help them recognize it. It is an incredible characteristic and I am honored to have him in my life. Continue to enjoy the journey."
"Adrian is everything but the status quo. Adrian is the person that doesn’t think about how the things are, but rather how they could be. He’s a life long learner, looking to learn about things bigger than himself. Striving to be enlightened while taking others with him on the path to enlightenment. What I love about him most is his positivity and his encouragement for you to be the best person you can be."
"What I see and understand with Adrian is that his undeniable need to inspire and motivate others. Whether it’s thru his intense, yet humbling and motivational one on one conversations, that goofy laugh of his or just living fearless in the moment... he has that gift that lifts people to new heights. I mean, I type this while I’m in Flagstaff because we had such a powerful and meaningful conversation. It literally saved and changed my life. And now I have and see opportunities I never knew possible. All because of him I believed in the human spirit and that we’re stronger when we’re serving to our fullest potential and living our life with purpose. That’s all the difference it takes."
"Adrian is an exceptional individual, student, artist and a professional. I would strongly recommend Adrian to anyone, not only because of his amazing creative talents, but also because of his drive, dedication and his passion for graphic design and his career. He has an innate entrepreneurial spirit and he is willing to work hard to achieve his goals that he sets for himself. I have had the pleasure of meeting him and helping him as his admissions advisor and I was thoroughly impressed by his professionalism and his hard work ethic. As a student on campus, he is a social butterfly and I see him often inspiring those around him just by his interaction with others and the way that he shows his passion for what he loves to do. I am truly excited to see all the great things he will achieve with his career and otherwise!"
