How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply Early Decision?
I always knew about Hopkins growing up, but I was especially eager on applying after I saw my cousin receive her bachelor’s from JHU. The beautiful campus, a wide array of available majors and the countless research opportunities made it my dream to become a Blue Jay!
If you could teach one class at Hopkins, what would it be? (already exists or invented by you!)
I would love to teach Pen and Ink Illustration. I believe the class allows everyone to allow their creativity to flow no matter their major.
What are you most excited to do in Baltimore?
I am most excited to visit the National Aquarium in Baltimore. As a California native, I have always loved the beach and studying marine life and habitats.
What’s your best piece of college search advice for high school students?
Find someplace YOU love, not a place where someone else tells you to love. Make sure to research the majors, area and campus life.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years? (dream big!)
Working in a research laboratory for my own chemical company developing treatments for pediatric cancer.
