How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply ED? The majority of my high school career was dedicated to doing a lot of independent research, so naturally, Hopkins became my top choice during the college admissions process. Another priority of mine was to attend a university with passionate learners, and I knew Hopkins provided just that. My sister also attends Hopkins, and she would always share with me how great the campus and student life is. I am so excited to surround myself with collaborative energy and research opportunities at Hopkins!
Who is the most influential person in your life and why? I can’t choose anyone over another, but definitely my whole family. They have supported me through so much, and pushed me to be the best version of me I can be. I would definitely not be in this position without any of them.
What are you most excited to do in Baltimore? I am so excited for all the food adventures I will get to go on with my new friends haha! I never really had time to explore new places outside of my home state, so it’s exciting to know in the fall I will be living in an entirely new state surrounded by new friends!
What are you most excited for about college and/or coming to Hopkins? To meet people from all around the world. It’s interesting to think how everybody’s life decisions resulted in all of us coming together at Hopkins. I know listening to everybody’s stories will inspire me to become a better version of myself.
