Hi, my name is Leanne. I am a junior studying Communication at the University of Maryland, College Park (UMCP) here at the Universities at Shady Grove (USG) campus. Some hobbies/interests of mine include being outdoors, hiking, working out, yoga, drawing/painting, cooking and journaling.
I began my college education at Shenandoah University where I was also recruited to play on the women’s soccer team. It was an amazing experience playing at the colligate level and something I had always dreamt of doing! After my freshman year I decided that although I enjoyed playing soccer and had met some great friends at Shenandoah, financially it made more sense to move back home and finish getting my associates degree at Frederick Community College.
This is my first year at USG! I am really glad I was able to complete my associate’s degree and seamlessly transfer to UMCP at USG. I am excited for these next few years and really diving into my major. I am still undecided which route I would like to go within the Communication major, but I am leaning towards either public relations or digital media.
This semester is unique in the fact that we are all remote. I hope that me sharing my experiences through the blog will serve as a way to connect and provide an outlet for myself and anyone who reads! I hope you enjoy reading my blogs and feel inspired to comment and/or share your thoughts or experiences too 🙂
