I chose UMBC because...

the Center for Women in Technology offers such an incredible community, and I'm really excited about all of the research opportunities with professors.

Favorite Spot on Campus

I love the wooden boardwalk that takes you from the edge of the circle to Pig Pen Pond. It's always peaceful and a great place to enjoy the gorgeous plants and the wildlife. One time I even saw a groundhog!

Fun Fact

I love Agatha Christie mysteries! I've read a bunch of the books, and my family likes watching the Poirot and Miss Marple shows together.
