Mr. University of Maryland Eastern Shore (2009-2010)
This collegiate gentleman is destined to make a very strong and distinct impact on the world. University of Maryland Eastern Shore student Devin L. Robertson, a senior Biology-Pre Medicine Major from Hartford County, Maryland, is focused on achieving and making his mark in the medical field specializing in obstetrics. After graduation, he plans to focus on attending either Howard University or University of Maryland for medical school.Family is very important to Devin and he knows their influence has been the most significant in his life. "They stress the importance of education and to be successful. They continue to push me and support me while I pursue my career," says Robertson. "My family is my support system in life. No matter what,they are always there."Robertson is very involved with UMES community organizations and clubs and is a member of the Student Government Association, Hawk Mentoring program and Project Achieve. He currently wears the crown and holds the title of Mr. University of Maryland Eastern Shore, serving as a walking extension and representation of UMES.Robertson is very aware of his responsibility to UMES. "I have a very big responsibility--being Mr. UMES. My job is to be a positive role model for the males on campus as well as those in the community," Robertson stated. "While holding this position, I plan to do just that by increasing male empowerment and reaching out to those who need to discover their own potential."Speaking more about his community involvement, Robertson says: "As far as the community, I'm going to reach out to the males who don't have fathers in the home, and [invest] all I can in them. While this will not be easy, I'm very privileged and feel it is a great Honor to be Mr. University Of Maryland Eastern Shore, and I give the entire honor to God for allowing me to be here."Mr. UMES also knows that the image of black men must change and improve. "I think the image of black men in general has been distorted, but it's slowly changing for the good. I believe the biggest challenge for African-American males is not knowing what we are capable of and not knowing our purpose in life," Robertson mentioned. "Most men just need someone to pull those capabilities out of them, and help them find their purpose. Once we understand that we can do all things, and know our purpose in life, the sky is limit for what we can have or achieve. This is the day and age for the African American men to rise up."
