What are your future college, service, future goals?
Cox: “I will be attending Lehigh University in 2019 where I plan to major in business. I hope to one day be able to use my knowledge in business, technology, and communications to help people at all socio-economic levels achieve their professions goals.”
How do you describe leadership?
Cox: “To me leadership entails much more then just being the person vocalizing for the team. To be a good leader you must take into consideration the collective goals of your team and be willing to do whatever it takes to make sure you and your teammates succeed as a unit. I believe every good leader must be humble, confident, passionate, and respectful.”
How do you balance lacrosse, school and extracurriculars?
Cox: “I’ve always worked better with a busy schedule because it forces me to maximize my time. I try really hard to not procrastinate and get to bed early so I can be productive the following day. However, I also think it is very important to accept that you are not always going to accomplish everything you set out to complete everyday and not dwell on it.”
