Just Moved

So I just moved to Maryland from beautiful sunny California, and not just any part of California but San Diego (CRAZY RIGHT!).  That’s not all. I was born in Los Angeles (L.A) California, where all the “hipster” (contemporary subculture) live and moved to San Diego (S.D), after living in Hawaii (Hi) for six years. Growing up in L.A was exciting, and I loved every second of it but my love for adventure drove me to explore various states and cultures. My ability to travel enabled me to meet great people in awesome communities like that of The Universities at Shady Grove (USG).

I have been living in Maryland for eight months now, and have heard many stories from a diverse group of inspiring people. The weather in Maryland is cold compared to California but “Marylanders” are the complete opposite. After a couple of days in Maryland, I spoke with many individuals from diverse cultures and different backgrounds who populate many communities in Maryland. Individuals specifically at The Universities at Shady Grove (USG) exhibit traits that inspire me to become a better version of myself. Since at USG, my consideration for others has grown due to the strong connections I have made with my friends in Maryland.

My time in Maryland has been very enlightening as I gained solid friendships and learned lifelong lessons. At the end of the day no one will remember materialistic gain but what they will remember are your actions and how you make them feel. The Universities at Shady Grove, has provided me with the great opportunity to be part of a community that caters to various cultures. I do miss my home by the beach but don’t regret my decision in attending a program at USG. How can you not be happy when you have nine different universities on one campus? The people are phenomenal and the community is inviting. USG will enable you to be a well-rounded person, motivate you to be the best you, and connect you with a diverse network that will change the trajectory of your future.

About ernieg

Aloha! My name is Ernie Gomez, I am a junior in the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland, College Park (UMD) attending The Universities at Shady Grove (USG) campus. I was born and in Los Angeles CA, and moved to Hawaii when I was 2O years old. I moved to Maryland in order to attend the prestigious Robert H. Smith School of Business at UMD. After graduating high school, I joined the Marine Corp but after eight years of service, I enrolled in college. My decision enabled me to obtain my Associates Degree in Business and Mathematics, at Palomar College in San Diego, California. After my move from California to Maryland, I looked for a top ranked business school that could help me further my education. The Robert H. Smith school easily became my top choice. When I was applying for college at Maryland, I learned of USG and the great resources available to students. After acquiring more information about USG, I just couldn’t resist. If you don’t know me! My hobby? Working on cars. Who inspires me? Anyone and everyone inspires me, because I know I can learn from every person I meet. However, I admire Eric Thomas who famously quoted, “When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll be successful.” Words that describe me: Humble, Compassionate, Powerful, Honorable My goal: My goal is to move back to California, next to the beach and buy a home also in HAWAII. I am a humble, compassionate and honorable individual who strives to accomplish my life goals. If you see me around school, feel free to say “Hi” and start a conversation. USG is my #1 pick and I am happy to be a part of the USG community. I hope you enjoy my blogs and if you have any suggestions please feel free to reply to my post.
