1 SCHOLARSHIP AWARDED:
What has your scholarship meant to you and how has it enabled you to pursue new and exciting opportunities?
This scholarship allows me to pursue new and exciting opportunities here at Maryland. The scholarship reminded me that I am a successful student, taking on leadership roles, participating in social events, and taking on a rigorous academic course load. It consistently reminds me to do my best both inside and outside of the classroom.
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 come from a small town in northern Jersey and the University is about three hours away from my hometown so it is the perfect distance. Also, I chose Maryland because it are highly ranked in academics and because I wanted to immerse myself in a large school community. At home, my town is so small that new faces are hard to find. At Maryland, I am able to meet someone new every day and I am able to learn new things about where people come from. Lastly, Maryland has an undeniable amount of school spirit and I am more than happy to call myself a Terp.
What is your major, minor, class and graduation year?
I am a freshman in the Robert H. Smith School of Business. My major is currently undecided and I am looking at at Finance and Marketing as my potential majors. My graduation year will be 2019.
What is your Hometown?
I am from Whippany, New Jersey. It is a small town in North Jersey, and it is relatively close to Manhattan.

Recently, I rushed Kappa Delta Sorority. Becoming a part of Kappa Delta meant a lot to me because their ideals are both positive and motivating. KD emphasizes the importance of confidence, being your best self, and being socially and academically successful. I plan on becoming more involved in the sorority and taking part in the many philanthropic events they hold in the future.
