Information Science / Damascus, MD

What made you decide to enroll at the University of Maryland?
One of the most important reasons that I enrolled at the University of Maryland is because of their outstanding research and scholarships. It is one of the top ranked universities in the nation and provided lots of financial aid. It's the most beautiful university with the nicest people who are always there to help you in every step you take.

What major/career path do you plan on pursuing and how did you select that path?
I am currently majoring in information science and my goal is to become a data analyst because it is very important to find useful information to help create a better program. I love challenging myself, so as a data analyst, you have to face many complex decision-making problems.

Activities I do outside of class or community service/volunteer activities I'm involved with:
I often participate in my local church, which provides food and clothes for homeless people. I have also volunteered for non-profit organizations to clean and help them organize their places. I like to go out and experience nature and its beauty.

Which programs are you enrolled in, and what have you gained from your experience in them thus far?
As of now, I am not enrolled in any Living and Learning Programs, but I would love to join any program that would help me work on my teamwork and communication skills.

Aside from academics, what else do you hope to take away from your time at Maryland?
For me, the two things that I would like to take away from my time at the University of Maryland are teamwork skills and friends. To achieve something in the real world, you need to have good skills in working with people and be able to lead them to get the work done. I think the friends that you make at university will be one of the most unique experiences you will ever have.

What are your future goals after graduation?
Firstly, I would like to pursue my dream of becoming a data analyst. The reason I chose this field is that it is all about thinking outside the box and being able to do problem-solving challenges. I would also like to go around the world and learn about unique cultures and their beliefs.
