What leadership roles or volunteer experiences have been important to you during your time at Maryland?
I have truly valued my experiences as a leader in the Student Government Association and the BSOS Dean's Student Advisory Council. Both of these organizations allowed me to develop and improve on-campus initiatives, whether they involve academics or general student affairs. I also had the privilege of volunteering for Habitat for Humanity during spring break my freshman year; that was an unforgettable experience that I would highly recommend to any student at UMD.
How will you make a positive difference in the world?
I am passionate about the law and how it can protect and serve the citizens and residents of the United States. My dream job is to work as an attorney for the U.S. Department of Justice where I can handle cases that protect the American people and ensure that justice is served for those who commit widespread crimes.
What is your major, minor, class and graduation year?
I am a Government and Politics major with a minor in Law and Society. I will be graduating in May 2017.

Tell us about your favorite class, extracurricular activity, academic opportunity, community involvement or another unique experience.
One of my favorite extracurricular involvements is competing with the University of Maryland Ethics Bowl team. Competitions involve a timed analysis of various cases that contain controversial, contemporary moral issues. Since joining the team my freshman year, I have developed a strong interest in philosophy and ethics and have trained my oral argument skills in preparation for school. Ethics Bowl is a valuable experience that I will always value when looking back at my undergraduate education.
