What leadership roles or volunteer experiences have been important to you during your time at Maryland?
President - Terp Movement; Executive Board - Business Ethics Society; Committee Member - Student Government Association; Alumni Chair - Alpha Tau Omega; Committee Member Public Leadership Advisory Council.
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 forego getting a job this semester as I work on various campus projects and my internship.
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 UM because I wanted my school to have it all. I wanted academics, sports, a good social atmosphere, and access to a major city. Maryland fit that bill perfectly.
How will you make a positive difference in the world?
First, I hope to promote human rights in China. Right now, I am working on a research project to assess how the Beijing Olympics will affect basic human rights. Hopefully, my first positive difference will come in that arena. Yet, I also would love to work on developing sustainable practices in developing nations. We will see where my career takes me.
