Home, to me, is a place where I surround myself with family and learn my purpose. UMBC is truly my home; I am spending time with my CWIT family and discovering where I belong in this world through my classes and extracurricular activities like SWE (Society of Women Engineers) and Cyber Dawgs (the cyber defense team). Living in the CWIT-LLC has solidified this familial bond. The floor has the perfect combination of academic and social focuses. Everyone is so willing to help and support each other. The CWIT community and my classes at UMBC are helping me discover my purpose in this world. I have always loved math and science and decided to pursue a Computer Engineering major. I also want to encourage young girls to study in technological fields and help balance the ratio of men to women in STEM fields. The CWIT community at UMBC is helping me combine my passion and career by earning my degree while participating in outreach events for CWIT. I know that the continuous support from my CWIT family helped me earn a 4.0 GPA my first semester of college.
