Hello all! For those who do not know me I am Tyreese. I am a sophomore here at the Univeristy of Maryland. I am a West Warwick, Rhode Island resident (for those who don’t know, that is about an hour from Boston) and have been all my life! At the end of my four years here I hope to graduate with my bachelors in Civil Engineering and a minor in project management. I plan to continue my education and receive my masters and perhaps my doctorate in my specified field as well.
In addition to prioritizing my heavy work load, I am currently a member of the Digital Cultures and Creativity Mentorship Program here at College Park. With the mentorship program, a few of my fellow DCC mates and I get the opportunity to spend time with students from local high schools. In our monthly gatherings we plan activities/lessons to share with the students. You may think its all work and no play, but that is not at all true. After completing the planned activities, we continue to enjoy our time while playing games, watching movies and just hanging out. We are simply here to help them in whatever we can.
With school aside, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, watching movies, listening to music, playing basketball, traveling and shopping!! I have been playing basketball since the age of five and continue to have the love, drive and passion for it to this day! Because of basketball I have been able to travel more, make friends and meet new people. One of the most important things this sport has taught me is how valuable hard work and dedication are and can be. Without these values, and God in my life (I am extremely religious) I do not know where I would be today.
With all that said, I think I have covered it all. In the words of Porky Pig (Looney Tunes) : “That’s all folk!” #CLASSIC
