How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply Early Decision? I discovered Hopkins through past graduates from my school. I decided to apply to Hopkins under the Early Decision plan because of the many opportunities to pursue my passion at the campus level and beyond, such as internships and study abroad. Upon visiting the campus I also fell in love with the environment and student atmosphere.

If you could teach one class at Hopkins, what would it be? (already exists or invented by you!) History of Coffee and its Consumption.

What’s your best piece of college search advice for high school students? Start writing your Common App essay during the summer. Seriously.

What are you most excited for about college and/or coming to Hopkins? Spring Fair, research with experienced professionals in the field, study abroad.

What do you hope to get involved in on campus? Volleyball, Intervarsity, Volunteer, Research

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? Chandler Bing, Coffee Oreo Ice Cream with Whipped Cream and Rainbow Sprinkles

Where do you see yourself in 10 years? (dream big!) Founder of a successful Biotech/Bio company like 23&Me.

If you could give your junior-year-of-high-school-self one piece of advice, what would it be? Stop stressing so much. Everything will be okay. There will be more important things to stress about.
