What has been your favorite class at UMBC?
Physical Geography with Professor Halverson! This class was awesome and Professor Halverson is so funny with his “rock puns”. Even though it had nothing to do with my major, it was a very great class and I learned a lot as well. I recommend this Science course to everyone who wants a fun Science credit.
Where did you complete your internship?
I interned with Amidus, solar company. I helped plan events and lead a marketing campaign for the company.
