What leadership roles or volunteer experiences have been important to you during your time at Maryland?
Facilitator for Bisexuals at Maryland Community Assistant for Denton Hall
What has your scholarship meant to you and how has it enabled you to pursue new and exciting opportunities?
My scholarship means so much more to me than the most amazing four year experience of my life at someone else's expense. To me, my scholarship means that someone has faith enough in me to invest in my future.
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?
Size, diversity, and academic prestige were three very big factors in my decision to come to the University of Maryland. For most of my life I have gone to small schools where all the students looked like me, and now as I continue my transition into adulthood, I felt that it was important to see what else was out there.
How will you make a positive difference in the world?
It is my intent to give all of what I receive here at the University of Maryland, back to the community from which I came. It is my personal belief that the world would be a better place if everyone worked harder. The problem is, where I come from, the race is always won by the swift. I plan to use my knowledge among other things to broaden the horizon for the few who lose the race before they even begin, thusly diversifying the community and winning a major battle against ignorance.
