Class of 2023

Hometown: Bowie, MD

Major: Sociology

I chose UMBC because...

it was my most affordable option while also being comfortably far enough from home.

My most memorable UMBC experience was...

the homecoming soccer game, because I witnessed two very competitive schools going head to head. Safe to say we don't like to lose!

Favorite Spot on Campus

The Event Center, because that's where all the athletic events happen and those are super fun to attend. There are also a number of non-UMBC events that happen there, like concerts and wrestling events.

During my first semester, I wish I would have known...

to make friends! I ended up doing a lot of things semi-alone because I wasn't good at putting myself out there and talking to people.

I'm passionate about...

Helping Others Video Production Drawing Painting Graphic Design music production
