How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply ED? I discovered Hopkins through talking about it with one of my closest friends who was also interested in the medical field, we loved to talk about our futures as doctors even early into our high school experiences, and Johns Hopkins always stood out to the both of us from that. We were in awe over the gorgeous library to study in and how truly genuine the professors and people were from what we read and heard. I fell in love with the possibility of strolling along side the pier on campus and being a student at such a fitting school for someone interested in STEM. I was excited at the prospect of being around a community of like-minded, curious, and multitalented individuals. I decided to apply ED because I was sure that I wanted to be at JHU and become a Blue Jay, I felt called to be there.
What are you most excited to do in Baltimore? I am so excited to go sailing in Baltimore and explore the city! I love strolling through city streets and discovering the ins and outs of such a gorgeous place full of so much history. I would love to visit every museum and soak in the rich culture of it all.
What do you hope to get involved in on campus? I hope to get involved in multicultural clubs and outdoor activity clubs that I have never tried before! I am excited to explore different cultures and backgrounds through study abroad as well.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years? (dream big!) In ten years I see myself as a doctor, possible professor or teacher traveling in my down time on a boat that I own, sailing around the world and visiting different places. I am also interested in doing research, sailing and taking my research to other destinations and meeting new people right and left, and collaborating with other scientists and like minded individuals.
