Tour Guides and Grit Guide at University of Maryland, Baltimore County
Class of 2023
Hometown: Frederick, MD
Secondary Major: Media and Communication Studies
Living with and being surrounded by so many people my age has taught me things about myself that I wouldn't have known before: how I do in new, completely unfamiliar situations; how I handle conflict; how good I am at managing my time- the list goes on! I've had a lot of opportunities to step out of my comfort zone as well as sit tight and give myself space from others. Being a tour guide has helped with my confidence and leadership skills!
is there truly is something for everybody on campus, and so many opportunities! The best advice I was given was to try multiple clubs your freshman year and then narrow them down throughout your time at UMBC to really invest in what you love. It's helped me to try some activities I wouldn't have normally joined.
I felt very welcomed and comfortable in the Humanities Scholars program! Being with people who think like I do in terms of academics is really nice; we all have a lot of the same interests and passions!
my friends and I played frisbee on Erickson Field every Tuesday and Thursday, and I had a lot of fun and got to be a part of something consistent on campus that brought me closer to others!
