Major: Computer Science

My most memorable UMBC experience was...

studying abroad in Bristol, United Kingdom through UMBC's Dawg Days: Abroad program. I met so many wonderful people and saw a beautiful city, all while taking a course for college credit!

Fun Fact

I have been to four different countries through school-related trips: three during high school and one through UMBC (hopefully more soon)!

My advice to prospective students...

is college is what you make it, you do not need to have everything figured out right away. There will be time to try new things and find your passion!

How has UMBC helped you grow?

At UMBC, I have had the opportunity to step out of my comfort zone and assume leadership roles on campus. This has helped me become more outgoing.
