What has been your most impactful class?

My most impactful class was Intermediate Playwriting! In this class, we read, watched, wrote, and analyzed a variety of plays from across the globe and genres. This course provided me with a new perspective on text analysis and the creative process, which will serve me well wherever life takes me.

What is your favorite Emory tradition?

My favorite Emory tradition is Dooley's Week, which celebrates Emory's unofficial mascot, Dooley the Skeleton. The weeklong celebration takes place each spring and is filled with fun events planned by the Student Programming Council including food trucks, carnival rides, games, and more. Additionally, Dooley releases students from class throughout the week! It truly is a really exciting time of year.

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

One of my favorite parts about Emory is that we have two private nature preserves: the Lullwater Preserve and Hahn Woods. Most days, you can find me running in Lullwater with friends, enjoying its beautiful trees, lakes, and waterfalls!
