What leadership roles or volunteer experiences have been important to you during your time at Maryland?
I've been involved in giving talks at my former high school to perspective computer science students. I think it's important to try to encourage young people to get involved in the technology field.
What has your scholarship meant to you and how has it enabled you to pursue new and exciting opportunities?
My scholarship has enabled me to focus on my education instead of worrying about how funds and how I am going to pay for school. Because of this, I am about to graduate with a degree in computer science.
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 a lot of my family went here and I grew up a Terps fan. Once I knew I wanted to do computer science and I saw the program UMD offers, the decision was easy. I love being a part of Maryland culture and supporting all our sports teams.
How will you make a positive difference in the world?
I've always wanted to create the next big thing that will really help make a positive difference in people's lives. I want to build software that will make everyday a little better for someone.
