Is there a quote or motto that inspires you? What is it and what does it mean to you? “The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.” I wanted to learn so many things; I wanted to experience so many things; I wanted to try so many things. But when others say that those are all waste of time, I gave up and other things that are considered “meaningful”. Since I’m an international student, I have six months of gap-year to go to Hopkins. I learn the things that I have truly wanted to; I apply for every job to experience a bigger world; I try everything I can. This quote lets me enjoy time wasting. It makes my life so much abundant and happier.

What do you hope to get involved in on campus?  I would love to get involved in many different clubs and sports(I play lacrosse). Also, I am looking forward to Baja racing with peers majoring in mechanical engineering. I also love music, so I may be part of one of the acapella groups!

What are you most excited for about college and/or coming to Hopkins? Meeting new friends, learning diverse and profound subjects, and discovering Baltimore.

What is the accomplishment you’re most proud of? (big or small!) Getting into Johns Hopkins University!
