Mariel Docabo


Bold Points




Hello! my name is Mariel Docabo. I am currently pursuing a Bachelor's degree in Information Science with a concentration in Data Science and Analytics. I have always been fascinated by numbers and how much information one can infer with them. My goal is to start a career in the analytics field and eventually create a company that would help people earn professional experience in the field. I am currently in the U.S by myself and have been pursuing my studies since 2017. My family being across the world, I don't have the privilege of being able to see them whenever I want to. So, in every conversation that I have with my family, I always tell them how much I love them. Whenever I get homesick and feel alone, I always remind myself that I do what I do because of my family. I am a very optimistic individual. I try to find the light in dark hours for my benefit. I also try to share this optimism with the people around me. I believe that having a positive outlook in my life will get me to where I deserve to be! I am very excited to finish my career and be able to help my family. I also want to help students who share similar experiences with me.

    Make Me Laugh Meme Scholarship
    This is one of my favorite memes! I like how even memes became very popular in our generation, this meme still managed to include an aspect off of the 90's. The backstreet boys is one of my favorite bands and it never really crossed my mind how could someone would be able to make a meme off of them, but here we are with this meme.
