How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply Early Decision? I first learned about Hopkins through the TV show Grey’s Anatomy during my sophomore year. After finding out it was a real place, I did my research. Everything I found made me fall in love with the school. From the amazing reputation the school holds to the beautiful campus I took a virtual tour of, I knew it was the best fit for me so I applied ED.

Is there a quote or motto that inspires you? What is it and what does it mean to you? “Stay humble. Stay hungry.” To me this quote means to always be grateful for what you have and be proud of what you’ve accomplished so far, while also always maintaining a drive and hunger for more.

What are you most excited for about college and/or coming to Hopkins? I’m most excited for the independence in learning that college offers. I’m excited to take charge of my own learning and dive into the things that spark my curiosity.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years? (dream big!) In 10 years I see myself in an operating room preforming surgery. And then, after a long day at work, I will drive to the nice and small apartment I share with 2 or 3 of my friends.
