Business / Baltimore, MD

What made you decide to enroll at the University of Maryland?
I chose the University of Maryland for the large variety of internships and job opportunities. The business school is one of the top business schools in the country and a degree from UMD is worth so much to me. UMD is also the perfect distance from home, not too far but not too close. I also love the large school aspect since I am coming from a small high school.

What major/career path do you plan on pursuing and how did you select that path?
As of right now I am an undecided business major, but I plan to take a career path in either finance, accounting, or marketing.

Activities I do outside of class or community service/volunteer activities I'm involved with:
I have been involved in volunteer activities at a summer camp for children with autism as well as a nursing home. In high school I was a student ambassador and president of the National Honor Society.

Which programs are you enrolled in, and what have you gained from your experience in them thus far?
I am in “Carillon Communities.” From this experience thus far I have learned to work better in a group aspect. In the future I hope to gain better knowledge on how to network as a student and be led on a path of success at UMD.

Aside from academics, what else do you hope to take away from your time at Maryland?
From my time at Maryland, I hope to work hard for a good business opportunity as well as hopefully find an internship. I also am excited to possibly join a club or sorority as well as meet new people and teachers.

What are your future goals after graduation?
My future goals are to move to a place that makes me happy and work in a field that I enjoy. I hope to travel and work remotely at some point to gain more cultural experiences. After traveling I want to have a family and enjoy what I do for a living.
