How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply Early Decision? During my visit to Johns Hopkins, I noticed that everybody had a unique passion. I think Hopkins is a place where I can surround myself with people that are constantly trying to improve themselves to reach their maximum potential and it’s really motivating and inspiring. I also am going to be a part of the Varsity Men’s Tennis Team and that’s going to be a huge part of my experience at Hopkins. My sister is currently a junior at Hopkins, and I’ve only heard great things about the opportunities and resources that Hopkins provides. I’m super pumped for the next 4 years on Homewood campus.
Is there a quote or motto that inspires you? What is it and what does it mean to you? “It’s not how many times you get knocked down that counts, it’s about how many times you get back up” – George Custer. This quote always reminds me that there is always a way to get back up when the odds are facing against you. There is always a way to make the best out of a bad situation.
What is the accomplishment you’re most proud of? (big or small!) I am most proud of winning the Illinois Singles State Title as well as the Team State Title in 2018.
