How has UMBC helped you grow?

UMBC has helped me create my resume, get a job, and taught me many lessons about college life and my future career.

Favorite Local Shop or Restaurant

Crepe Escape which is 12 minutes from campus. They sell crepes and boba tea, and is a great place to take photos and hang out!

What makes UMBC home?

The warm and welcoming community. I've never felt isolated because of how I look or where I'm from while at UMBC.

During my first semester, I wish I would have known...

to come in with AP credits. It can be intimidating to take AP classes during high school but it pays off in the long run.

I'm passionate about...

Behavior Analysis Baking Black Lives Matter Photography Human Rights Hiking/Backpacking

I'm involved with...

Psychology Research Assistant Psi Chi International Honors Society Applied Behavior Analysis Society UNICEF Student Events Board
