How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply? I discovered Hopkins after chatting with my friend (who is a current student) when she first applied ED, she spoke so highly of it that I had to investigate and I soon began to admire Hopkins as much as she does. What motivated me to finally apply was combination of the comprehensive financial aid offered, a world-class education with endless research opportunities, and a student life that distinguishes itself by being so supportive of new students.

Who is the most influential person in your life and why? I would definitely say that my best friend is because of how excited she was to help me find THE college for me

What do you hope to get involved in on campus? I think I would like to be a part of the admissions, tour, and outreach process on campus so that I may have a chance to introduce other potential students to JHU.

What’s your best piece of college search advice for high school students? Never let anyone turn you away from looking at a college, find out if it’s the one for you YOURSELF.

What are you most excited for about college and/or coming to Hopkins? I am very excited to begin my first research project, something I have only been able to dream of doing until now.

If you could get ice cream with one person (real or imaginary; dead or alive), who would it be and what kind of ice cream would you get? I would get an Oreo ice cream cone with Greta Thunberg
