Hello CSS Community: My name is Yannick Alexis and I am currently a junior pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Fire Protection Engineering with a minor in Spanish Culture & Business. This past summer, I had the opportunity to intern at Jensen-Hughes; the largest Fire Protection engineering consulting firm in the nation! This was my first major specific internship and the experience was truly enriching. I enjoyed bonding with coworkers, completing meaningful work, and, most importantly, having an opportunity become indoctrinated into different areas within the field of fire protection!

The College Success Scholars program has played a key role in shaping my personal, academic, and professional experiences at the University of Maryland, College Park. My first year in the program, I was well resourced with tutoring services, free printing, and a satellite office where I spent many hours studying and getting to know other scholars. The following year I had the opportunity to be a team leader. In that role, I was able to understand the behind-the-scenes work that drove the program forward and develop my communication and leadership skills. Continuing in that role this year, I have further developed those skills and cultivated a professional relationship with others in the program and in the OMSE office. Through the CSS program, I have truly grown and matured as a young male of color.
