My freshman year I volunteered with the SUCCESS program and hope to continue with them in this upcoming year. My hobbies include drawing, playing the occasional video game, making jokes, eating at the campus Chick-fil-A and, of course,staying fit. I can also confidently say I am an avid dog lover.

I am a big fan of sports, soccer being the main one. I am also a leader at a local Young Life club. Being on the floor and just being a part of the Shriver program was such a unique experience and I look forward to my coming year. I volunteered with the SUCCESS program last year and I loved doing it! It’s brought me great joy working with the students and I plan on returning to the program my coming year.

Hello, my name is Marcus Stine. I grew up in Southern Maryland. I’m from a small town called La Plata and went to La Plata High school. I’m a second year mechanical engineering major. I was a member of the Shriver Floor last year and it was what my made my first year of college easy. I’m apart of UMBC’s VITA which is also my service site. Some thing interesting about about me is that during senior year in high school, I was a state Placer in track and field.

Hi! My name is Princess Sara Njemanze. I am a rising sophomore from Mitchellville, MD. I am currently a Chemical Engineering major and a Theatre minor. I am also in the pre-dental program. I LOVE service. In the past school year, I served at Best Buddies where I spent time building relationships and completing fun and interactive activities with women who have intellectual disabilities. My hobbies include baking, doing hair, singing, dancing, acting, playing guitar, running, songwriting, and finishing full television shows in one week. I also like talking to random people who eventually become friends and wearing color coordinated outfits. Most importantly, I love JESUS. I am more than excited to return to the Shriver floor, meet new people, and continue giving service on and off campus!
