My most memorable UMBC experience was...

during my freshman year, the Homecoming Carnival fell on my birthday, so my friend and I collectively played over 600 games of cornhole to have enough tickets to win me a pair of nice headphones.

My advice to prospective students...

is the sense of community on campus is the most important factor in choosing a college. I have felt like a part of UMBC's community since my first campus visit, and I absolutely love it.

How has UMBC helped you grow?

UMBC has helped push me ot of my comfort zone in many ways. I attended a week-long leadership retreat my freshman year, and it did wonders for my confidence.

My UMBC hack is...

get to know your professors. The classes I've enjoyed the most have been those where I've developed a good relationship with the professor.

I'm passionate about...

Bowling Cardmaking Baking

I'm involved with...
