Aron Ralston Sacrifices His Right Arm to Save His Life �
Trapped in the Utah wilderness, the engineering graduate determined what he had to do to free himself—and did it
When old college friends would get together and talk, stories of Ralston and his adventures would surface even when he wasn’t there. “The thing was that he never lost the sense of himself,” friend Jay “Benny” Blanco (E’98) of Columbia, Md., said. “He was the same guy who I met in Hamerschlag [House] our freshman year for all four years of college. He wasn’t selfish. He wasn’t egocentric. He never said a bad word about anyone. He brought life to us all.”

About G...

Evolving and revolving! Douglas Adams & Woody Allen are my soul mates from another era. My quirkiness is an eclectic mix of Jess (New Girl), Dharma and Carrie Bradshaw. Sharing my birthday with Paulo Coelho & Stephen Fry, i'm always reading a book and enjoy having engaging conversations about life and love. I take children, wit and play seriously, very seriously. I'm a renaissance soul who enjoys yoga, vodka with cranberry and doodling. Working in the field of Education and Story-telling, there are only two things i look forward to: Knowing myself and Everything that matters!
