How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply Early Decision? I applied to Hopkins because of the vibrant and close-knit community, the invaluable research opportunities, and the love of learning that resonates within the faculty and students.

What book, album/song, or TV show has had a profound influence on your life? Regular Show (It represents my childhood, and I’m so happy to become a blue jay so I can also relate to Mordecai, the main character in the show)

Complete this sentence: “I would not be here on this journey to Hopkins if it weren’t for _______________________” my squad of 10 best friends who helped me get through all the hurdles of the high school experience and inspired me to dream big and work hard towards my goals.

Is there a quote or motto that inspires you? What is it and what does it mean to you?My favorite quote comes from Mr. Miyagi of the original Karate Kid. He says “Man who catch fly with chopstick can accomplish anything”. This quote inspires me to dream big and to work towards any goal I have no matter how outlandish they may seem. All it takes is hard work and dedication to achieve your hopes and dreams.
