How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply Early Decision? A sort of ‘love at first sight affair’, first sight being my own college research.

Is there a quote or motto that inspires you? What is it and what does it mean to you? A poem, rather: Invictus by William Ernest Henley. It resonates with my belief and further assures me that the human Will, that force unseen, The offspring of a deathless Soul, Can hew a way to any goal, Though walls of granite intervene.

What do you hope to get involved in on campus? Research, research and research.

What’s your best piece of college search advice for high school students? It’s all about passion and what is in alignment with who you are.
