How did you discover Hopkins? Why did you decide to apply Early Decision? I saw a picture of the George Peabody library on Pinterest, did some digging, and fell in love with Hopkins. I applied early decision because I couldn’t see myself at any other school.

What do you hope to get involved in on campus? I hope to get involved with the BME Design Team Program as well as Blue Jay Bhangra.

What book, album/song, or TV show has had a profound influence on your life? I read A LOT. Some books that have influenced my life are A Thousand Splendid Suns and And The Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini, Carry On by Rainbow Rowell, and the Princess trilogy by Jean Sasson. As for music, Lover and Folklore by Taylor Swift speak to me. I couldn’t (and still can’t) stop dancing to Paper Rings the first time I heard it.

What are you most excited for about coming to Hopkins? I’m extremely excited to meet and work alongside people who have similar passions and goals as I do.
