My name is Donovan Ahern, and I am from Fond du Lac, Wisc. Currently, I am a senior majoring in corporate communication with a minor in public relations.

My favorite Marquette memory is attending the first Marquette basketball game after the pandemic. The energy in the Fiserv Form was palpable and I felt a strong sense of camaraderie with my fellow students. To top off the experience, Marquette beat Xavier 66–59.

In 5 years, I hope to have established a successful career in business or communications with a reputable company, particularly in the entertainment industry, using my creativity and sense of humor along the way. I also hope my golf game sees some improvement within that time.
