Meet the Alumni Leadership: Nicole Smith ’10

SmithN_20140529Name: Nicole Smith ’10, modern languages and linguistics (German concentration)
Employer: Albin O. Kuhn Library & Gallery at UMBC
Alumni leadership role: Secretary/Historian for the Chapter of Young Alumni (CYA)

Q: Where are you from originally?
The Arbutus/Lansdowne area in Baltimore County

Q: What’s your favorite UMBC memory?
Cardboard surfing! My friends and I would spread broken-down boxes in our dorm’s hallway and proceed to act like penguins for the next few hours. There’s far too many embarrassing photos…

Q: Why are you involved in an alumni chapter?
It’s a wonderful opportunity to stay connected with the campus and support current and future students. And I get to work with some of the coolest people around; it helps me stay creative.

Q: Why do you think it’s important to support UMBC?
Supporting UMBC means supporting students. Gifts to the campus don’t end up in limbo–they directly impact a student’s success, and from there, their future.

Q: If you could visit any place in the world, where would you pick?
Seal Island in South Africa (well, on a boat near it). Great white sharks will propel themselves out of the water when hunting here, and that’s pretty much the coolest thing.
