This is Me
3 SCHOLARSHIPs AWARDED:
What has your scholarship meant to you and how has it enabled you to pursue new and exciting opportunities?
The scholarship is truly a great help. It helps pay my tuition which would in turn help me relieve any impending money issues I may have to take my time away to deal with. Though getting a part time job may be a good experience, I can focus on attending college. The payment towards tuition enables me to focus my attention to academic matters and not worry too much about thoughts of being in debt. This enables me to not limit my schedule in that I can take classes that interest me without worrying about external factors. It's a great help financially, academically, and mentally.
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?
In the end I chose to attend the University of Maryland because it was close to home so it was easier for me to keep in touch with my family, it had a beautiful campus and because I believe I can learn a lot based on the great academic reputation it has.
My favorite part in being a Terp is being a part of such a diverse community. I am able to meet people from across the nation and from various backgrounds. Meeting all these different people opens up the world and makes it a great learning experience.
