Maksymilian, who goes by Maks, has been working as a lifeguard this summer at his local pool. He has been making sure to stay physically active and going to the gym. He also went to Six Flags Great America many times, with friends and family.

In Maks’ words, “Going away to University of Illinois Springfield will definitely be a big change for me (and my family), but overall I’m looking forward to it! I will be majoring in Information Systems Security (cyber security), and will be in the school honors program. I intend to be very active on campus, participating in different clubs or intramural sports. I also plan on attending mass every week and a youth group on campus.”
