Everyone knows him. He talks to everyone. He’s 20-year-old Michael Brady. “I am who I am, I like people, I will talk to anyone who will talk to me,” he says. Michael is a junior from Queens, New York, majoring in applied math to economics.
You have probably seen Michael’s writings published in The Paw Print, Pace University, Pleasantville’s newspaper. Michael, as opinion editor for the paper, usually fills the two page spread he gets each week with his thoughts on everything from political issues to what’s happening at Pace. Michael also represents The Paw Print at the weekly Student Association meetings.
“I enjoy traveling and hope to do quite a bit after I graduate from Pace,” he says. He took part in an Honors learning community travel course to England in the spring of 2005. He also studied abroad in Florence, Italy, for six weeks in the summer. “My favorite place in Florence was San Minato, which is on a hill overlooking the city.” While studying art history there, he visited many other Italian cities. He’s also been all over the United States; from skiing in Vermont to sightseeing in Las Vegas.
If there is one thing to remember about Michael Brady, it’s that he never sits in one place for too long. “I like a lot of different things. I don’t like sitting still,” he says, and it certainly shows. “I would go out to a bar or a museum and probably enjoy myself just as much.” Not only is he cultured, but he’s active, too. “I run usually two or three miles a day. I like to get up and get moving.” He also enjoys a good book. “I like to read, I just finished the novel The Tipping Point.” To top it all off, he’s a photography fan. “I like to take pictures, particularly land and cityscapes.”
After graduation, Michael plans to attend law school. Wherever his future leads him, Michael Brady will defiantly remain well known.
