What’s a piece of advice that you would give to an incoming student?

Spend time enjoying the college experience and not stressing about grades! I have loved my public health courses, but most of my favorite memories have happened outside of the classroom. These past four years have been filled with amazing experiences, and I hope that every student at Hopkins sets aside time to do the same.

What’s your favorite thing about this school?

One of my favorite hobbies is to look at real estate, and I am obsessed with the architecture at Hopkins. I love having picnics outside on the Gilman quad and enjoying how pretty the campus is.

What puts a smile on your face?

Seeing the largest Hopkins celebrity, Amadeus the Saint Bernard, walking around campus!

What do you do when you’re not studying?

I love food and go through phases where I obsess over a restaurant, and then go to it multiple times in a row. My favorite restaurant right now is Bar Clavel on 23rd street. It has amazing tacos, queso fundido, and happy hour deals (if you are over 21), and is the cutest restaurant I have been to in Baltimore.

What’s your guilty pleasure?

Brody Cafe’s chai tea lattes with whip, they are AMAZING. I think that I have had about five in the past week, no regrets.

What’s a change you’ve made recently?

I was on the varsity fencing team for the past three years but had to limit my time fencing this year due to my commitments to the Student Government Association. Having fencing practice every day forced me to work out frequently, something that is hard to make time for. I signed up to run a half marathon in March, and have begun preparing for that!

Why did you come to Hopkins?

I grew up in the neighborhood surrounding the University of Chicago. I see many parallels between that neighborhood and Charles Village, the architecture on both campuses, and the students at Hopkins and the University of Chicago. I wanted to get away from Chicago for the first time but I also loved how similar Hopkins was to home. Hopkins feels an east coast version of the University of Chicago with more of a focus on sports, something I cared about when coming to college as an athlete.
