Biological Sciences (General Biology) and Sociology Double Degree


Year:  Junior

Hometown:  Rockville, Maryland

Major(s)/Minor(s):  Biological Sciences (General Biology) and Sociology Double Degree. I am also on the pre-med track.

Activities I Enjoy:  On campus, I have really enjoyed being apart of the FIRE program. Even though I completed the program, I have stayed on as a peer research mentor and have had a great time getting to know the new cohorts as well as continuing to have experiences in research. Off campus, I am a medical assistant at a community clinic and have enjoyed meeting new people as well as taking part in several community outreach programs.

Favorite Spot(s) on Campus:  ESJ and McKeldin Library

Favorite Class(es):  Any of the sociology courses I have taken or am currently taking because of how thought-provoking they are.

In My Free Time, I Enjoy:  In my free time I enjoy hiking, reading, painting and spending time with family and friends.

My Favorite Thing About Being a CMNS Peer Mentor:  My favorite thing about being a CMNS Peer Mentor is meeting other students who have shared interests and/or experiences as well as being a friendly face to anyone struggling to find their place at UMD like I did.
