How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply? I discovered it because my twin sister mentioned it to me when we started our college search. The university gives off a very welcoming and collaborative feel and I wanted to be a part of that.

Is there a quote or motto that inspires you? What is it and what does it mean to you? A motto that inspires me is “What would you do if you weren’t afraid?” A lot of times, we don’t try things because we’re scared of failing of embarrassing ourselves, but at the end of the day, you’ll never know until you try. It’s important to not hold yourself back because of fear.

What do you hope to get involved in on campus? I want to participate in research and join clubs for Latinx representation or mental health awareness.

What book, album/song, or TV show has had a profound influence on your life? The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo.

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 ice cream with Demi Lovato and the flavor would be peanut butter or dulce de leche.
