Kiva Lending Team: Greg Haft
We loan because...
My name is Gregory Haft, and I'm in my Junior Year at the University of Arizona. I'm a member of Pi Kappa Phi and an the acting community service/philanthropy chair. In this role, I am responsible for all philanthropic and community service events sponsored by Pi Kappa Phi and manage the planning, promotion, and execution of such events.
I grew up in Plainview, New York, a town located in Long Island and attended Plainview-Old Bethpage/JFK High School. From a very early age, I was introduced to athletics and played basketball, baseball football, and other sports offering pee-wee leagues for young boys. This exposure has shaped my activities as an athlete since, and as I grew older, I began developing an interest in wrestling. I became a member of the high school wrestling team my freshman year at Plainview-Old Bethpage/JFK High School, and was a member of the varsity wrestling team through my graduation in 2011. While on my high school wrestling team, I had a pretty successful track record, taking second place in my weight division at county qualifiers as a sophomore, and placing 1st or 2nd at all regular season tournaments. I was named “All Conference” his Junior and Senior years of High School.
Upon graduating Plainview-Old Bethpage/JFK High School, I began my freshman year at University of Arizona as a part of the Class of 2015 as a part of the university’s undergraduate nursing program. My goal is to enter into a medical career centered around working closely with patients, providing nutritional education, but in a position that is heavily associated with nursing duties. My scholastic and extra-curricular activities on campus are mainly involved in the health and medical type clubs; HOSA – “Future Health Professionals” being the primary student organization I'm a part of. HOSA, or “Future Health Professionals”, is a student organization whose mission is to promote career opportunities in health care and to enhance the delivery of quality health care to all people. It is a national student organization endorsed by the U.S. Department of Education and the Health Science Education Division of ACTE. I have acted in an appointed chair position on the student management board for one year, and hope to continue being involved in shaping the organization's activities and adding to it's success.
In my spare time, I'm a huge fan of following TV Series' and am a huge music fan. I'm a big fan of Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, and Homeland, as far as dramatic seasonal shows are concerned. I try to stay updated on news and updates about these shows, and really enjoy writing episode recaps. As far as music goes, I'm a big electronic and indie rock fan. Right now some of my favorite DJ's and bands are: Calvin Harris, Bastille, Disclosure, Boize Noize, The Black Keys, Neon Trees, and many many others.
