Journalism / Lanham, MD


What made you decide to enroll at the University of Maryland?
Growing up near the campus and loving the activities along with the community there is what made me ultimately decide to enroll at the University of Maryland.

What major/career path do you plan on pursuing and how did you select that path?
I plan to pursue broadcast journalism as it's something that has always caught my eye whenever I would watch anything on TV with my family.

Activities I do outside of class or community service/volunteer activities I'm involved with:
I play soccer on a travel team and volunteer coaching kids at nearby fields in my free time.

Aside from academics, what else do you hope to take away from your time at Maryland?
From my time at Maryland, I hope to become a better person, someone who is more understanding and views the world as a whole differently.

What are your future goals after graduation?
I want to enjoy life for what it is as you only get one chance at doing it.
