“I have never had so much encouragement from teachers and peers as I do at AACC.”
Amber found confidence in herself early on. Growing up in Baltimore, with her grandmother as her guardian, Amber quickly learned to be independent and responsible. She works and attends college full-time, volunteers in the community, and shines on stage in pageants.
Amber started taking classes at AACC last fall after graduating from Mergenthaler Vocational-Technical High School in Baltimore City. She decided to attend AACC because the College offered pre-veterinary studies and she liked the location and class sizes.
“I like that it’s small,” said Amber. “You get to meet so many people and you recognize them when you walk by. Everyone is really helpful and I feel like I have learned a lot here.”
This inspiring veterinarian loves to help people and animals and enjoys spending time with her two dogs – a Jack Russell Terrier and a pit bull and boxer mix. Her other favorite activities are softball, ice skating and participating in beauty pageants. She has participated in Miss Maryland USA and Miss Maryland Teen USA. Earlier this year she won Miss Glen Burnie Cinderella Woman and she will be completing in California from Nov. 21-27 for National All American Miss Baltimore.
Amber has created a life for herself by working hard and always putting her best foot forward. She thinks that AACC was the best place to start out and is grateful for where she is today.
“I have never had so much encouragement from teachers and peers as I do at AACC,” said Amber. “I am glad AACC has pointed me in the right direction.”
Amber plans on transferring to University of Maryland, Baltimore County after this fall term and then go to Penn State to continue her veterinary studies.
