How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply Early Decision? I knew Johns Hopkins first from my classmates. After hearing about the school, I watched different videos about the school and saw how people at Hopkins are very friendly and dedicated. Unlimited research opportunities and collaborative community attracted me enormously. I just saw that there wouldn’t be any place I may wish to spend the next four years than at Johns Hopkins. I could see that all my dreams will come true at Hopkins. Therefore, I decided to apply Early Decision and I am excited to be a novel blue jay.

If you could teach one class at Hopkins, what would it be? (already exists or invented by you!) Life economics and mechanical innovation: this class would be mostly focusing on how we can reduce the death of people by using innovations in mechanics and systems we use in our everyday lives.

Is there a quote or motto that inspires you? What is it and what does it mean to you? The quote which inspires me is “Stand for what is right even if you stand alone” by Suzy Kassem. Life is a series of choices and the choices we make are the ones which makes us who we become. Therefore, I believe that throughout the day, every choice I make may be either right or not so right. Regardless of the people who choose otherwise, I always want and pray that I choose what I think is right until I am proven wrong. I am sure that by doing this, I will become the better version of myself everyday.

What crazy invention would you love to design? I would love to design a machine system which saves passengers during the car accidents. I think the system would be part of every road so that whenever there is a car or any accidents, no any person dies.

What are you most excited for about college and/or coming to Hopkins? I am excited to meet people from different background with different ideas. I also want to experience the beautiful college life where I will have fun with friends and studies. Finally, I can’t wait to have my first research experiences at Hopkins.
