What leadership roles or volunteer experiences have been important to you during your time at Maryland?
I am a peer career educator at the career center, where I critique resumes of my fellow undergraduates. I also teach ballet to beginners at a local ballet studio.
What has your scholarship meant to you and how has it enabled you to pursue new and exciting opportunities?
My scholarship means a great deal to me, because it is a tangible reward for past hard work, and a motivation to continue to excel. I am very grateful to the people whose generosity made it possible.
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 the University of Maryland because I wanted to stay close to home, and continue my active role in my ballet studio and its non-profit performing group. Ballet is, and will continue to be, an important part of my life.
How will you make a positive difference in the world?
I am involved in a nonprofit performing arts group that conducts outreaches at local elementary schools and nursing homes. I really enjoy giving something back to the community that has nurtured me.
