Hunter Jones '20
Hunter Jones

My name is Hunter Jones and I’m entering my junior year at the University of Maryland. I’m studying Biology and I’ve got a passion for helping others. In my future I can see myself combining science, art, and creativity to help come up with solutions to our world’s biggest problems. I’m from Silver Spring, Maryland which I believe has given me such a unique perspective on life. I’ve grown up in an environment where there’s a beautiful blend of people, cultures, and passions surrounding me. Silver Spring is a place that has become so important to my growth. This melting pot is the perfect place for me because I’ve got a mix of interesting ideas waiting to be executed. I would say that I’m a jack of all trades, always seeking to expand my knowledge and try something new. I’ve got a natural burning sense of creativity. This has fostered a very artistic side of my personality. I love to draw, paint, write, make music, whatever I can get my hands on to express my buzzing thoughts. I would say that my art has allowed me to be a more critical thinker in my STEM courses. I think outside the box and approach problems in ways that go against the grain. Even when I can’t figure out problems on my own, I’m excited to learn more and find out what wrong steps I took. With every mistake I make, a lesson is learned and I grow a little more from the experience. I never look back on the past with regrets; rather I laugh and remember to try not to make the same errors. If I do, I remember that I always have friends and family to help me back up and add wisdom to my growing collection. I follow my heart and hope that all my gathered knowledge helps to guide me in the right direction at the University of Maryland.
