Hometown: Frostburg, MD

Major (Academic Program): Sociology

Fun Fact: “I was bullied throughout middle school and high school. It subsided around 10th grade, but the psychological impact is still something that I battle with on a daily basis.

Life is about being the 'most impactful' – Always be nice!”

Why did you choose ACM?: “I chose ACM because it was financially smart to do so. I have saved thousands of dollars by attending ACM for both of my associate degrees. Also, I was able to continue to learn at ACM because of many of the great professors. If not for them, I would not have gotten to where I am today.”
