How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply Early Decision? I found out about Hop from a friend of mine who is a student at Hopkins. From there, during college listing, after hours of research and comparison there was no reason not to apply ED. The entire principle on which the community is built attracted me along with the fact that it is one of the premiere research institution in the world
Who is the most influential person in your life? The most influential person in my life is one of my seniors, Devang Sehgal. He was a guiding point throughout high school and I owe a lot to him.
If you could teach one class at Hopkins, what would it be? (already exists or invented by you!) The Biology of Public Speaking
How has your family background or life experiences shaped you? From a young age, I was always encouraged to try what drew my interest (within limits). And I feel that led me to always be able to have a clear mindset in terms of my strengths and be able to plan whatever situation I faced.
What crazy invention would you love to design? I would love to design a device that makes it easier to tell what someone wants to hear.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years? (dream big!) In 10 years, I see myself researching about something that makes me happy, surrounded by friends and family.
What are you most excited to do in Baltimore? I’m excited to explore and try new foods
