Meet Harry Agnew

Harry is a rising senior at Temple University, majoring in Marketing.

 

What is the most impressive thing you know how to do?
I am licensed to drive the industrial size freight trucks that carry up to 30,000lbs of product.

 

Why did you decide your field of study?
I was originally a psychology major but decided I didn’t want to stay in school as long as it would
take to get the degrees to make use of a psychology major, I saw marketing as a field that
interested me and would give me the opportunity to put my interest in psychology to use.

 

What movie title best describes your life?
Eddie Murphy’s Coming to America because I am originally from England and moved over here in
2009 when I was 11 years old and that is a huge part of who I am and why I am the way that I am.

 

Where do you usually go when you have time off?
I like to go to Maine when I get an extended period off because I love hiking around the national parks.

 

What could you give a 40-minute presentation on with absolutely no preparation?
I could give a 40-minute presentation on soccer and the English premier league as its something I’ve
followed since I was 5 years old.

 

 

Meet Matt Defusco

Matt is a rising senior at Syracuse University, majoring in Sports Management with a minor in Marketing.

 

Where is the most interesting place you’ve been? What did you find interesting about it?
While studying abroad in Europe I got to visit a lot of cool places, but the most interesting one was definitely Biarritz in southern France. I went there on a surfing trip and it was an awesome little beach town with beautiful weather and great scenery. I would go back in a heartbeat.

 

Where else would you like to visit and why?
One place I didn’t get to visit while studying abroad that I really wanted to go to was Spain, particularly Madrid and Barcelona. I grew up taking a lot of Spanish classes and Spain always seemed like a really good spot to visit.

 

What skill would you like to master?
I would like to get better at graphic design and Photoshop, it’s something that I’ve played around with in the past and I think it would be a really useful skill to have in my arsenal.

 

Who has impressed you most with what they’ve accomplished?
I have never been more impressed with anyone’s accomplishments than when the Philadelphia Eagles backup quarterback Nick Foles won a Super Bowl in 2018 against all odds. Go Birds.

 

What’s something you’ve been meaning to try but just haven’t gotten around to it?
As a music and cover band enthusiast, I’ve always wanted to learn how to play the guitar. I tried learning last summer but that consisted of me watching 1 minute of a YouTube tutorial and quitting because I thought it was too hard. I will be back to conquer the guitar one of these days.
