The NeW Gentlemen’s Showcase has had some amazing nominations so far. Here on the NeW blog we will be highlighting each gentleman to get to know them a little better and see why they should be the NeW Gentleman of the Year.
How do you define a gentleman?
I define a gentleman as a man who treats everyone with respect, goes above and beyond for others, and is chivalrous.
Do gentlemen still exist? Why or not?
Yes, while rare, I believe gentlemen exist. I believe we exist because I’ve seen it in my father, my family, and my friends, and because if I am to be one, which I hope to be, they must exist.
What is the best piece of gentlemanly advice you have received?
“Courtesy is as much a mark of a gentleman as courage.” ~President Theodore Roosevelt.
Who are your role models for gentlemanly behavior in your daily life or in pop culture?
My role models when it comes to being a gentlemen are Senator Marco Rubio and Governor Bobby Jindal.
What is something you have done or said that exemplifies a gentleman?
I never let a woman walk home alone.
