2 SCHOLARSHIPs AWARDED:
What has your scholarship meant to you and how has it enabled you to pursue new and exciting opportunities?
This scholarship made it so that I didn't have to take out a small private loan this semester. Because of the help, I will be able to finish out my education using only FASFA. I've been working over the semesters so that I can pay for my next year without a private loan as well. I'm very thankful for this scholarship considering I'm not sure how I would have managed to take a private loan out in the first place.
How will you make a positive difference in the world?
I plan on primarily using my engineering abilities to help people. After having been in school a while, I realize I wanted to to be an engineer in the first place so that I may make things for others and to make their lives easier. The field is so massive, I figure it shouldnt be difficult to find jobs and projects to work on. Next year I will begin looking for potential employers in hopes of them accepting me.
What is your major, minor, class and graduation year?
Currently I'm a junior by credits. I'd be a senior this yearby credit, but I spent 2 semesters at a community college and transferred. I will graduate in Spring of 2016.
What is your Hometown?
My hometown is Myersville Maryland, just a quick 10 minute drive drive Frederick Maryland.
Tell us about your favorite class, extracurricular activity, academic opportunity, community involvement or another unique experience.
I'm actually a Quadruplet. People seem to think it interesting so I figured I'd share it. People always comment on how hard it must have been on our parents. They've pulled through and persevered. It was a little weird my first year of college. My siblings went to seperate schools, so it's been weird getting used to not seeing them every day. But the University of Maryland made the change much easier than I had anticipated.
