How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply Early Decision? I visited based off a recommendation and fell in love with the school.

Is there a quote or motto that inspires you? What is it and what does it mean to you? “Do not go gentle into that good night” reminds me to not take my life for granted.

How has your family background or life experiences shaped you? Lake Michigan, combined with the ravine behind my house, has taught me the beauty of nature.

What book, album/song, or TV show has had a profound influence on your life? The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien.

If you could get ice cream with one person (real or imaginary; dead or alive), who would it be and what kind of ice cream would you get? I would get chocolate ice cream with René Descartes.
What are you most excited to do in Baltimore? I am most excited to explore Chesapeake Bay.
