Major: Mechanical Engineering

Being a part of CWIT has not only given me educational opportunities, but it has also given me a community that I know will support me no matter what. In the year that I have been a part of CWIT I have been given a lot of chances to grow not only as a student, but as a person and a professional. I am so happy to be a part of a community that accepts everyone and encourages us to push ourselves both academically and socially. During my time here at UMBC my interest in Mechanical Engineering has only grown and part of that is because of CWIT. It has provided me with so many different opportunities to talk to industry professionals; this way I can see where my degree will take me in the future. CWIT has provided me with people that I can go to for anything and I am very grateful for that. I have loved being in CWIT so far and I’m excited for what is to come.
