What has your scholarship meant to you and how has it enabled you to pursue new and exciting opportunities?
My scholarship enabled me to finish college with my Bachelors degree in Family Studies. It enabled me to have one less loan that I needed to take out which gives me more money to spend on graduate school.
Why did you choose to attend the University of Maryland, what makes this place special to you and what is your favorite part of being a Terp?
I chose to attend UM because it was close enough to home and had a great variety of fields that I could enter. At the time of applying I did not know what degree I wanted to pursue and UM has so many options that I knew I would find it there. Also, I loved how beautiful the campus was and how it was a city of its own.
