What do you want to be when you grow up?

I wanted to go into science.

What’s your biggest struggle right now?


Where’s the coolest place you’ve ever been?

The telescope lab on the roof of Bloomberg, it is pretty amazing, because you get to play with a really big telescope

What’s your favorite thing about this school?

How amazing the faculty are here. The professors and most of the TA’s are so approachable, nice, and understanding and how you get to know many of them on a first name basis.

What puts a smile on your face?

Getting a text at 5:30 AM from the university telling me that all non-essential personal don’t need to show up today. Also how on April Fool’s Day I go to “John Hopkins University” (WOW that just looks so wrong!!)

What do you do when you’re not studying?

I watch Game of Thrones. A lot of Game of Thrones. Yes, I am addicted. I also happen to hang out with a bunch of musically talented people from my dorm, so we also have Disney musical singalong night from time to time.

What’s your favorite memory since you’ve been at Hopkins?

Ice skating with friends
