How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply Early Decision? Since I was a child Hopkins has been my dream school and I have worked my hardest to get here.

What’s your best piece of college search advice for high school students? Check the college mission and vision – if you relate to it very well academically, personally and passionately, only then add the school to the final list.

What are you most excited for about college and/or coming to Hopkins? The Dance Marathon and the research! I am also super excited to learn more and in-depth with very educated professors.
