What leadership roles or volunteer experiences have been important to you during your time at Maryland?
I am on the executive board of the ENSP Student Association, and it has been a great experience to work with other ENSP majors toward creating a community among the major. We plan social events, bring in alumni and other speakers to talk about their jobs, and do environmental community service projects.
I have enjoyed a similar role with the UMD student chapter of the Wildlife Society, where I am the treasurer in addition to educational and career-related events.
Finally, I am interning as a tutor at the UMD Writing Center, where I spend 6 hours/ week helping other undergrads from ESL to honors students with their writing.
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 Maryland because of the programs, like ENSP and the Honors College, the atmosphere, size, and proximity to DC. I love the school and am so happy with my choice, as I have met so many passionate, interesting people, both professors and students.
What is your major, minor, class and graduation year?
I am pursuing a dual degree in Environmental Science and Policy and GIS as well as a minor in Professional Writing, expecting to graduate in May 2019.
