What has your scholarship meant to you and how has it enabled you to pursue new and exciting opportunities?
The David Andrew Tretter Memorial Scholarship means a lot to me. More than anything, it has given me confidence in my abilities as a student. To work hard in the pursuit of knowledge is something that all students should strive to do, but to receive recognition for it in the form of this scholarship is icing on the cake.
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 UM because it is in-state, a leading public research university, and because of its large size. The division one athletic programs were enticing as well.
How will you make a positive difference in the world?
I strive to be the best at everything I do. I'm a firm believer that if you are going to do something, it should be done well. Aside from my profession, I try to make a positive impact on everyone in my life, whether it is through comfort in times of need, or through my sense of humor.
