Grit Guide at University of Maryland, Baltimore County
Class of 2021
Hometown: Upper Marlboro, MD
I have lived in 3 out of our 6 residence halls and 3 out of our 4 apartment communities.
my roommate throwing me a surprise birthday party at the end of freshmen year. It was the weekend in the middle of finals week but it was nice to take a little break from exams and celebrate my birthday and the end our first year with my friends.
I have learned that things may not always go according to plan and that is okay! We can always adapt and adjust to our circumstances!
I knew from the beginning that I would have staff members and peers who supported me and encouraged me.
