Teacher’s Pet: Gaimari bares all about growing up in Chicago

Where are you from?

Chicago, Ill., originally.

What was it like growing up with Walter Payton, Mike Ditka, Barack Obama and Kanye West?

It was pretty good. Kanye West used to steal my lunch money in school, but Walter Payton was actually one of my childhood heroes when I was growing up.

What did you do at Boston College?

I went to class, made a lot of friends that I still have today, I worked in the Office of First Year Experience and I explored the great Italian food in the north end of Boston.
