How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply Early Decision?
I first discovered Hopkins when watching Grey’s Anatomy (I know right…) but have since then fallen in love with the school itself. I ended up applying ED because I knew JHU is the only school I wouldn’t regret going to even if I was accepted by any other universities.
What book, album/song, or TV show has had a profound influence on your life?
Wolf Totem. I must have read this book at least a dozen times and it’s about a young man who raised a wolf pup when he lived in Inner Mongolia. The book taught me to never give up, especially in difficult situations.
What are you most excited for about college and/or coming to Hopkins?
I am super excited to meet everyone and start the new adventure of my life! Also (very) excited to get out of the 12-months long rain season in Vancouver.
Complete this sentence: “I would not be here on this journey to Hopkins if it weren’t for _________________________.
My parents, friends, and teachers. They have all been there for me when I needed them and I honestly would have never made it out of high school without them.
