Information Science / Columbia, MD


What made you decide to enroll at the University of Maryland?
The University of Maryland was a school close to home and it was the school I wanted to go to ever since I was a kid.

What major/career path do you plan on pursuing and how did you select that path?
I am currently majoring in information science. I choose this path because I have always been fascinated by computers since I was a kid.

Activities I do outside of class or community service/volunteer activities I'm involved with:
I like to play video games and watch anime. I'm also the event coordinator of the UMD XR Club.

Aside from academics, what else do you hope to take away from your time at
Maryland? I hope to meet new people and make new friendships that can last for the rest of my life. I also hope I can grow as a person and learn to better understand myself.

What are your future goals after graduation?
I'm not sure exactly what I want to get into, but I hope that I can find a job in my field which can help me support myself in the future.

My favorite part of being a Maryland Promise Scholar:
My favorite part of the Maryland Promise Program is our meetings. Michelle Udeli, the program manager, makes them super fun and informative.
