How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply ED? While researching colleges, I had two things in mind. I wanted to move to the east coast (as a change of pace from the suburbs of Los Angeles) and wanted to attend rigorous school filled with like-minded students with the same passion for the sciences as me. I visited Baltimore for the Cyberpatriot National Finals X in freshman year and fell in love with the city. My visit, as well as the STEM opportunities at JHU, made my ED application a no-brainer!

Is there a quote or motto that inspires you? I always try to leave a place a bit better than I’ve found it, no matter how small or large my contribution is!

What book, album/song, or TV show has had a profound influence on your life? Any book by Dan Brown (especially The Da Vinci Code or Angels and Demons) that I am reading at the moment is always a great read. I always binge watch Criminal Minds too (the profound influence being Matthew Gray Gubler!).

What fictional character do you most relate to or most closely represents you as a person? Jo March from The Little Women: We both love to write, hate outdated gender expectations, and enjoy hanging out with family over going out.
