How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply Early Decision? Honestly, I don’t remember the moment I found out about Johns Hopkins. I just realized at some point that I was in love with it, and that no other school would satisfy me.

Is there a quote or motto that inspires you? What is it and what does it mean to you? “The question isn’t who is going to let me, it’s who is going to stop me.” This quote from Ayn Rand symbolizes my continued pursuit of greatness. If you want something, you must reach for it with all your heart.

How has your family background or life experiences shaped you? My family runs a small restaurant, so we are a working family. From the moment I could form coherent sentences to my typing this message, I have worked. All things begin and end with work. The more work you put into an activity, the better the outcome.

What are you most excited for about college and/or coming to Hopkins? Drowning myself in knowledge!
