Class of 2023

Hometown: Ellicott City, MD

Major: Visual Arts

Concentration: Animation

I chose UMBC because...

The Linehan program and the opportunities it provided piqued my interest. It also really helped my tuition cost, which made UMBC my final choice. I also have interest in studying outside of my animation major, and UMBC could provide classes outside of art that I could take.

What makes UMBC home?

The people/community and the environment. Being a smaller school, I often run into people I've met through classes, clubs, etc. It's nice knowing that I'm not surrounded by complete strangers, and that some of those strangers may become my friends someday!

Fun Fact

My parents own a sushi restaurant in Baltimore City. I did some graphic design work for them too!
