Hi! I’m Ariella and I am so thankful! I could not be more fulfilled with the opportunities that have been bestowed to me upon deciding to move from New York to Maryland to study computer science and run division 1 cross-country and track. Everyday is a challenge but at UMBC and within CWIT I have found a home of people who truly support and inspire me to never give up and to be the best I can be always! Over the course of my three years here I have been able to manifest my skills through internships and teaching assistant positions. Studying computer science has been a wonderful challenge for me. I love the advancing versatility of the field. I could walk into any line of profession and be beneficial. Therefore, I believe that my psychology minor compliments it perfectly. I have always been fascinated with the brain so I hope to marry the two in attempts of making the world a better place. I am so excited for the future and my journey!
