How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply? I discovered Hopkins through my parents when I was really young but never really saw myself attending until my junior year of high school. Ultimately, I decided to apply because of how accepting Hopkins is towards students with a variety of interests, and I know that in my four years at JHU, I will receive priceless opportunities and experiences.

Who is the most influential person in your life and why? My dad! He is my biggest supporter and always gives the best advice.

What are you most excited to do in Baltimore? I am excited to explore the city and try as many good food places as possible!

What’s your best piece of college search advice for high school students? Take your time and truly find a school where you can challenge yourself and grow as a student and individual!

What are you most excited for about college and/or coming to Hopkins? I’m excited (and a little nervous) to meet people from all around the world! I am also looking forward to learning from the professors and students around me and hopefully spending a semester abroad as well.
