How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply ED? I was fortunate enough to be able to tour Hopkins before Covid, and I absolutely fell in love with it. After doing more research on the school and seeing how welcoming the community is, I knew Hopkins was the school for me and decided to apply ED!
Is there a quote or motto that inspires you? What is it and what does it mean to you? A fun quote my Science Olympiad coach always says is “Get More Gooder.” It’s a constant reminder to improve yourself and be the best you can be, and it always reminds me to work harder!
What do you hope to get involved in on campus? I’d love to do research on campus and get involved in organizations such as the Charm City Science League or A Place To Talk.
What’s your best piece of college search advice for high school students? Reach out to current students! Talking to current students at a college you’re looking into can give you some personal insight into the school that you can’t find otherwise.
What fictional character do you most relate to or most closely represents you as a person? Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter! She always embraces her quirks and is very imaginative, and of course, she’s a Ravenclaw!
What are you most excited for about college and/or coming to Hopkins? I am definitely most excited to meet everyone and make lifelong friends! I am also excited to explore the new opportunities and take on challenges at Hopkins that I’ve never had before.
What is the accomplishment you’re most proud of? (big or small!) Getting accepted to Hopkins!
