Students at the University of Baltimore are a talented, engaged and busy group of people. They come from all walks of life, some young and some older, many already involved in their careers and active on any number of fronts. But no matter where they come from or where their interest lie, one thing is certain: They are driven—determined to transform lives, change things for the better, make a positive impact in their personal and professional lives. Some—well, some are simply extraordinary.
Here are just a few:
