Grace, who is originally from Bel Air, Md., says her favorite thing about Loyola is the close relationships she has developed with her professors. Grace is an elementary education major with a minor in special education who will graduate in 2021. Beyond her classes, she is involved in Back On My Feet and is a member of the club swimming and club field hockey teams; she also serves as an Evergreen orientation leader. While at Loyola, Grace created a school supply drive with donated goods from the Loyola community called “Shop ‘Til you Drop,” which gave third-grade students at the Turnbridge Elementary School an opportunity to shop for school supplies while using pretend money to practice their math skills. Grace says her experiences at Loyola, including her involvement in extracurricular activities, has pushed her outside her comfort zone and motivates her to succeed. After she graduates, Grace plans to teach reading at the sixth grade level in Baltimore City. She also hopes to serve local inmates by helping them develop adult reading and writing skills.

Many of my professors at Loyola have been some of my biggest advocates and supporters, and I wouldn't trade them for the world.
