Hometown: Elkridge, MD

Major: History

Secondary Major: Print Media

Minor: Ancient Studies

My UMBC hack is...

to get to class an hour early. I'm a commuter and in order to find a parking spot, I like to leave an hour before my class starts to give myself time to park and then time to walk to class.

Favorite Class or Professor and Why

The History of Medicine with Dr. Chapin. I enjoyed how even though it was a History course, the class was filled with people from majors such as Biology and Computer Science. Sharing a class with students of other majors helped to see other perspectives about History.

My advice to prospective students...

is to try as many new things as possible.

My most memorable UMBC experience was...

working our summer orientation programs. I made life long friends with my fellow coworkers and was able to help new students get excited about coming to UMBC.

I'm passionate about...

Drawing & Painting Arts and Crafts

I'm involved with...
