Molecular and Cellular Biology/Computer Science

Ria A.

Hi, I'm Ria! I'm a freshman from San Ramon, California (shoutout to my Bay Area people). Currently, I'm double majoring in Molecular and Cellular Biology and Computer Science because I think both biology and data are beautiful (and also because I'm extremely indecisive). I love lists (and parentheses), hot mugs of tea, journaling at 2 AM, and singing loudly in the shower when I think no one's around. When I'm not writing about my experiences here at Hopkins, you can usually find me volunteering with Alpha Phi Omega, a community service fraternity, or teaching Science Olympiad to middle school kids through Charm City Science League. Coming to Hopkins from 2500 miles across the country was not an easy decision (6 hour flights are NOT fun), but I can confidently say that I've found my new home. If you're interested in reading about the shenanigans I get myself into, stick around :^)
