Kevin Schechter

University of Maryland, College Park, USA

My name is Kevin Schechter and I am a rising sophomore at the University of Maryland, College Park. I am studying computer science, as I greatly enjoy coding and am always up for a problem-solving challenge. In addition to furthering my own knowledge, I also like tutoring other students as an opportunity to help others and understand what I've learned from another perspective. Another great interest of mine is in entrepreneurship, which I have pursued through a video montage company I created with my friend. In my free time, I enjoy playing music on any of six instruments I play, watching and making movies, and helping the sound engineers at my campus's radio station. Travelling is another major passion of mine, as I have a large interest in world affairs and am always fascinated when learning about unique cultures. I have visited many diverse countries including Italy, Russia, Turkey, Iceland, Egypt, Germany, Spain, Denmark, and Norway, and I'm very excited to add Austria to the list. I cannot wait to learn more about media and global change with students from all over the world and have no doubt the Salzburg Academy will be an unforgettable experience.
