What’s your biggest struggle right now? My biggest struggle right now has to do with my Sophomore thesis. I am writing about Shakespeare’s Lady Macbeth as an anomalous instance of an 11th century Scottish noblewoman and examining how she becomes abstruse when surrounded by the more Early-modern characters who make up the rest of the play. I have never written anything similar to a thesis before and I am certainly being kept busy by this project.
Why did you come to Hopkins? I knew that I would be able to study under phenomenal faculty members here. I also liked the academic freedom Hopkins has to offer, as well as the support and direct relationships students have with faculty members here.
What do you do when you’re not studying? I love to read for fun. However, when I’ve had a particularly reading-intensive week at school, I enjoy going to the Hopkins music practice rooms and singing.
