How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply Early Decision? Since I’ve got passion for research and science, Hopkins was added to my school list. The style, content, and the color of Hopkins’ website is right to my taste. The more I know about Hopkins through its fancy website, the more determined I am to join this vibrant community. The information session given by Mr.Igo in Shanghai settled my mind to apply Early Decision. I myself share the same interest with him in his final double majors, and I value the opportunities to do research and explore interdisciplinary interest through open curriculum at Hopkins.

How has your family background or life experiences shaped you? My family travel abroad or support me to do so almost every summer vacation.

I’m open up to new perspectives and befriend with so many amazing people.
