What does being a UMBC McNair scholar mean to you? Being a McNair scholar means much more than following my goals and dreams. It’s about every other student who has been through the process of obtaining a PhD and giving back to the community. I believe that being part of a community that pushes to pursue their own dreams and aspirations requires discipline, motivation and desire to grow. As a family, we all will lead to a larger group of successful first generation students who want to obtain their PhD.  Creating a opportunity for future students that just need a opportunity to show what they can do, is also what I needed. So why not give back?
