In Jomaly’s time at Loyola, she blossomed from a shy student who didn’t know the language or the culture to a confident academic who has found her home at Loyola. Originally from Puerto Rico, she now lives in Edgewood, Md. Jomaly is a double major in Forensic Studies and computer science with minors in Chinese and Asian Studies. She applies her education as an intern with GFTD; with her computer science knowledge, she researches domains and new coding languages. Along the way, she has found numerous mentors like Rev. Thomas Roach, S.J.; Yu Zhang, Ph.D., associate professor of Chinese; and Megan Olsen, Ph.D., and David Rivers, Ph.D., who teach computer science and forensic courses, respectively. Loyola’s Jesuit liberal arts education opened her eyes to different perspectives. “I have taken classes on topics I ended up loving. Thanks to this, I consider myself a universal person focused on understanding instead of imposing.” As Jomaly reflects on her experiences at Loyola, she advises students, “You create your own experience. Talk with advisors, professors, or other students. They always try to help you, but you need to do your part.”
