#MMCProud 💙 Five years ago, Rome Leykin ’09 was headed to work as a web developer when his world changed in an instant: While waiting on a subway platform, he suffered an epileptic seizure that sent him into the path of an oncoming train. Leykin, 36, lost both legs in the accident and suffered a traumatic brain injury. However, in the years of recovery that followed, he not only resumed his life but found new purpose, emerging as a competitive para-athlete determined to inspire others.

MMCProud! 💙 A big congratulations to Kathryn Miramontes, who’s been named valedictorian of MMC’s 2023 graduating class. She’ll address faculty and administrators, her classmates, and their families at Commencement, which takes place at the United Palace theater on Friday, May 19. Miramontes is a History major with a concentration in Fashion History and Historical Costuming and an Art History minor. After graduation, she hopes to work as a fashion history research consultant overseeing period costumes on sets or as a stylist. Her message for fellow graduating seniors? “We all have different plans after MMC,” she said. “But my main goal is to tell the Class of 2023 that no matter what your next step is, this is a huge accomplishment. We’re all graduating from college in New York City, and that’s so awesome.”  Go to mmm.edu to read more about Kathryn! #Classof23 #MMC #GoGriffins #collegegraduation #NYC #UES @art.mmc @humsoc_mmc
