In addition to the dietetics program, I like Maryland College due to the culture of diversity that is implemented by the staff and students. The institution is accommodative to all students from different backgrounds including international students with same mindsets and values of the institution. This environment creates room to develop trust, honesty, and success. Therefore, my background as Cuban-born American who has an array of talents will improve the innovation perspective of the institution as well as develop my talents further for success.
In college, as I became more politically engaged, my interest began to gravitate more towards political science. The interest in serving and understanding people has never changed, yet I realized I could make a greater difference doing something for which I have a deeper passion, political science. Pursuing dual degrees in both Psychology and Political Science, I was provided an opportunity to complete a thesis in Psychology with Dr. Sheryl Carol a Professor in Social Psychology at the University of Texas (UT) This fall I will complete an additional thesis as a McNair Scholar with Dr. Ken Chambers, Associate Professor in Latin American studies in the UT Political Science Department.
