Family First

Sophomore Matthew Picariello has been with his brother Jake since birth. They do almost everything together and have made many memories with one and other. They have had a great influence on each other.

“My twin brother Jake is the most important person in my life,” Picariello said. “We have been inseparable since birth.”

Picariello believes that being alone is difficult, and that having a support system is very important it can help you immensely during hard times.

“Definitely having someone who is always there for you makes hard times easier,” Picariello said.

Since the pair are so well knit together when they are apart loneliness can be prominent.

“The 11 minutes I was in the womb without Jake were the loneliest of my life,” Picariello said.
