What made you decide to enroll at the University of Maryland?
My family all enjoyed what the university had to offer. I had visited the University of Maryland several times and I enjoyed the campus and community. My cousin also went to UMD and got his bachelor's in economics. Additionally, UMD is one of the top schools in the country and has a premier business school for me to study at.
What major/career path do you plan on pursuing and how did you select that path?
I plan to major in business management. I chose to study business because it is essential to every industry and gives me the flexibility to explore any industry I want. I specifically chose to focus on management because I enjoy working with others and the problem solving that management requires.
Activities I do outside of class or community service/volunteer activities I'm involved with:
Recently, I passed the exam to get my insurance license, so I am currently studying different forms of insurance and what it takes to become an insurance agent.
Which programs are you enrolled in, and what have you gained from your experience in them thus far?
I am currently enrolled in the Justice and Legal Thought Scholars program. I have met a variety of people studying different majors and I have started to feel a sense of community as we go to class and study together. Hopefully, I will feel even closer to my fellow scholars as we get to know each other.
Aside from academics, what else do you hope to take away from your time at Maryland?
I hope to gain more experience in a variety of fields. I want to participate in the community and meet many new people from numerous walks of life. I hope to participate in internships and travel the world. I want to feel like after four years, I accomplished as much as possible at UMD.
What are your future goals after graduation?
After graduation, I want to travel and explore the world a bit before I hop into the workforce. I am certain I want to go to France, Italy, and China but I am open to traveling elsewhere as well. However, for what job I want, I am still uncertain. I want to learn more at the university and see what careers I can go into before I say for certain.
