Why did you choose UMBC?
I chose UMBC because from the moment I stepped onto campus, I could see that the entire community was supportive of students & wanted to see them succeed in more than just academics

What do you love about UMBC?
I love that student victories both inside and outside of the classroom are recognized

What would you say to a prospective student?
Work hard, play hard. College is tough, but you need a balance of fun in there too!

What has been your favorite class at UMBC?
IS 300 has by far been my favorite class! I took it as a sophomore unsure of what major I wanted. It really opened my eyes to the world of IS beyond programming!

What do you hope to achieve after you complete your degree at UMBC?
I work full time for the Department of Defense My ultimate goal is to create systems for the military that that reduce gaps in their information flow.

Is there anything else you would like to share with us?
Get involved outside of the classroom! Student Government has given me the ability to see myself as a strong leader. That’s not an opportunity anyone should pass up!
