How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply Early Decision? I first stumbled upon Hopkins when I learnt that Thomas Morgan (one of my greatest inspirations) was an alumnus there. The more I learnt about the university, the more I fell in love, and I knew it was the perfect fit for both my passions- Biology and writing.

If you could teach one class at Hopkins, what would it be? (already exists or invented by you!) I’m the moderator of a subreddit called “Burning Questions” where people can submit questions they felt uncomfortable asking other people in person- whether about deep personal problems, controversial topics, or something else. Other memebers of the sub can answer the question, and give their views. I feel that as a course it’s a perfect complement for a philosophy major.

What is the accomplishment you’re most proud of? Getting into JHU, obviously!

What are you most excited for about college and/or coming to Hopkins? Meeting likeminded people and getting to exalt in our work.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years? (dream big!) As a published author with a charity to help underprivileged Indian children get world class education!
