David Kirstein, 2017 SGA President

Current standing: SGA President, working toward A.S. and A.A. degrees

Background/Hobbies: 23-year-old native of Apex who enjoys rap freestyling. “Nothing seems quite as good to me as a clutch quatrain ‘off the dome’.”

Education/Career plans: Transfer to a university

Advice for students: From Henry Ford: “When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.” My experience is that on the other side of the most trying time of my life were blessings that I never could have dreamed of.

Best thing about Wake Tech is… it has afforded me the opportunity to rediscover myself and to grow.
