Computer Engineering / Upper Marlboro, MD


What made you decide to enroll at the University of Maryland?
The University of Maryland's A. James Clark School of Engineering will allow me to explore my interests in computer engineering further, they have a great sports program, and a beautiful campus that will make me feel at home. All of these factors made me decide to enroll at the university.

What major/career path do you plan on pursuing and how did you select that path?
I chose computer engineering as my major to explore my love for technology and logistics. I do not know what I will pursue yet as a career, specifically, but I am sure I will get there soon.

Activities I do outside of class or community service/volunteer activities I'm involved with:
Outside of class I give back to my community by participating in food and clothing drives. I also transcribe documents through the Library of Congress.

Aside from academics, what else do you hope to take away from your time at Maryland?
I hope to gain connections with people in the industry so I can truly understand what it means to be in the field.

What are your future goals after graduation?
My future goal is to pursue an engineering career and do art on the side.
