Why I chose Johns Hopkins: I came to visit Hopkins during SOHOP, and I felt at home here right away. I talked to students, and I noticed that everyone was driven to achieve this great dream. Though everyone’s dreams are different, every single person is willing to work hard to get there. That impressed me a lot. Then, on the other hand, Hopkins has the most spectacular campus EVER! I fell in love with it. Best decision I have ever made!
Favorite character from a movie/book/television series: Matilda. She filled my childhood with magic.
Favorite place on the Homewood campus: Keyser Quad. Studying on the lawn and looking towards Gilman is sooooo relaxing. I love it.
Favorite place in Baltimore: Inner Harbor!
Favorite Johns Hopkins memory: I really loved Pre-O. It was so much fun to go backpacking. It has become a way to escape from stress!
What I want to do with my major: I would really love to go to medical school! I want to be a pediatric oncologist.
