On a random day, you're most likely to find me….

Walking to a friend's dorm or on the quad throwing a football or frisbee.

What has been your most impactful class?

Child Development with Dr. Patti Owen-Smith was a tpsl course, that made it possible for me to apply what I was learning in the classroom to real-life interactions with children.

My favorite thing to do in Atlanta is...

I love to go to Ponce City Market on the weekends with my friends and try the wide variety of foods, while also watching the most popular movie at the time in the theater.

What is your favorite Emory tradition?

My favorite Emory tradition is the candlelight procession for convocation. Convocation is an event where the incoming class gathers around the quad at the beginning of the new year with candles and Dooley (our unofficial mascot) tells about the previous year in the form of funny poetry.
