Hector Rivera '22, Men's Squash

Why Hamilton?: The beginning of my senior year of high school saw me travelling across New England to visit various colleges. I remember my night as a prospective student and I absolutely loved my visit at Hamilton. It's different from the city vibe I'm used to, but everyone seemed so relaxed and chill. As we all relaxed with our free coffee outside of Opus 1, I felt at peace and kind of at home.

Favorite Past Sports Memory: Even though this happened well before I began playing squash, my favorite sport memory was when I was playing indoor kickball in the sixth grade and I kicked the ball into the basketball hoop.

Who is your role model and what's their relationship to you?: My mother is my most important role model. She has struggled with a lot in life, and yet, she managed to raise all three of her children by herself. Judging by where I ended up, there are no words to describe what her sacrifices mean to me.
