New Semester Here We Come

Hello friends!

Welcome back to the new semester:) I hope you’ve all had an amazing and relaxing break and are now ready to start this semester strong. As a new year comes around, we often tend to set some new goals that can usually improve our resumes as well as teach us new skills. With that being said, as I was walking around the Takoma Park Campus last week I noticed that there were some flyers on the walls regarding a program offered at the school and I felt the need to share it with you guys. The program is called iLead Leadership Program and they are currently accepting new applications. This semester-long program is great because it’s designed specifically for Montgomery College students! This program is a great opportunity if you’re interested in gaining leadership skills, meeting new people, and participating in student leadership retreats. I am sure that there are many of you out there who are looking for something to do outside of classes while at the same time teach you new things, so I invite you to check out the flyer here.

The deadline is still one week away so don’t miss out on this great opportunity to be part of a program that also meets at the school’s main campus. Also, make sure that you are committed to assisting the meetings because it plays a big part in the program. Don’t forget to have fun and enjoy the activities you’ll get to do as part of the program. And lastly when you get accepted, congratulations from me!! I hope many of you take advantage of this opportunity and I look forward to reading down in the comments of those interested in applying.

There will also be an information session on February 7th from 2:00-3:30p.m. in CM 211 or you can also contact:
Kimberly Herrera, Director of Student Life
240-567-1482 or via email

Here is also a direct link to apply for the program:)

I hope all of this information is useful and serves you well in the future! Let’s get this week started on the right foot and have an extraordinary week raptors.





Meredith Cordero

¡Hola! My name is Meredith and this is my third and last year at MC. I hope to transfer to the Universities at Shady Grove (USG) next fall. My goal is to become an orthodontist and reach out to countries and communities that cannot afford dental care. I hope to share my experience with you all and most importantly enjoy the process as we get through this year together.

I am now 20 years old and exactly 5 feet tall. Don’t let that fool you though; I am a small but concentrated human being. I enjoy talking to people just about anything, and I listen to a lot of music in my free time in both Spanish and English. Music is so special to me, especially if there’s meaning behind the lyrics and if it makes you move like nobody’s watching. I love going to the movies on the weekends.

When it comes to school, I am all for it. I am a low-key (maybe high-key) nerd. I get excited if I’m feeling prepared and organized when I step onto campus, almost like a super hero. Ok, maybe not to everyone. Either way, I always look forward to a new day and what’s to come with it. This doesn’t mean I will always be happy, but I will at least try to overcome what may bring me down.

I have never written a blog about myself, but I do enjoy talking so hopefully that comes in handy -fingers crossed! MC has not just taught me about the many opportunities but also being part of a diverse community might just be the best thing you could ever be part of. I am thankful for this opportunity and I hope you enjoy what I have to share about MC and well, me!
