How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply Early Decision? I have always heard of Hopkins through textbooks, but my main push was learning of the institution in AP Psychology. Being the first research university in the United States and almost always leading research in neurology (and in medicine) pushed me to fall in love. I was excited to be able to visit and was motivated even further to apply as soon as I could!
Who is the most influential person in your life? My mother!
If you could teach one class at Hopkins, what would it be? (already exists or invented by you!) Something like the Mechanics of Neuroanatomy!
How has your family background or life experiences shaped you? Coming from a rough childhood to being blessed with amazing parents, my life experiences are beyond numerous to be specified! I have the interesting experience of a father from another country (Turkey) and sharing my entire life with my fraternal twin, Jeremy!
What is the accomplishment you’re most proud of? Getting into Johns Hopkins!
