Computer Engineering / Gaithersburg, Md.

Why did I choose Maryland?
University of Maryland had the most appealing campus life and best opportunity for me to expand my network of connections.

What major/career path do you plan to pursue and how did you select that path?
I chose computer engineering because I always worked and tinkered with computers, so I've become familiar with and interested in them.

Activities I do outside of class or community service/volunteer activities I'm involved in:
I have yet to involve myself in any outside-of-class activities. I used to have an internship, but I took a break from it before entering my freshman year, to ensure I could handle university workload before adding on internship work.

Which living-learning program are you enrolled in, and what have you gained from your experience in that program thus far?
I am in the Park Scholars program, specifically the Science and Global Change.

Aside from academics, what else do you hope to take away from your time at Maryland?
I hope to build a long-lasting network of colleagues and friends while also building my resume.

What are your future goals after graduation?
My goals are to live in a small studio apartment and work from home most of the time. While I'm not working I would spend time on my hobbies or spend time fostering animals.
