How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply Early Decision? I went to an information session and fell in love with the set up of the college. I knew that it would be a great opportunity to study at Hopkins.

What’s your best piece of college search advice for high school students? Always keep looking and don’t limit yourself too much. In the end, one place will just feel right.

What fictional character do you most relate to or most closely represents you as a person? I relate the most to Annabeth Chase, from Percy Jackson, because she was the first major female character I had experienced who was blonde and very smart.

If you could give your junior-year-of-high-school-self one piece of advice, what would it be? I would tell my junior self that all the stress and hard work will eventually pay off and that everything will fall into place.

What are you most excited to do in Baltimore? I am excited to explore, experience actual seasons, and visit Washington DC in my free time.
