Major: Information Systems

Expected Graduation Year: 2018

T-SITE Scholar T-5

As a senior at UMBC, I have started to reflect on my college experience thus far. I am an untraditional college student in the sense that I went to Prince George’s Community College (PGCC) and then transferred to UMBC in Fall 2016. I have grown so much from my time at UMBC and a large part of that growth can be attributed to CWIT. Thanks to the community and support CWIT offers me, I have been able to step out of my comfort zone. I am soon-to-be President of the Information Systems Security Association, working on an undergraduate research project that examines interaction design in museums, and have given speeches on numerous occasions. In the research project, I will be creating a video game prototype for the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian, The Great Inka Road: Engineering an Empire exhibit. When I first started my college career at PGCC, I would have never imagined myself giving a speech or designing a video game. UMBC offers you many opportunities, all’s you need to do is be willing to take them.
