My favorite thing to do in Atlanta is...

exploring the shops and restaurants of Ponce City Market!

What has been your most impactful class?

My most impactful class was definitely my first-year seminar, Comparative Perspectives in Children's Literature. What I loved about this course is that we got to read literature ranging from Curious George to the Grimms Fairy Tales, and then analyzed the stories across time periods and cultures, discussing the values and morals that the texts sought to teach readers. This course was not only loads of fun, but also really strengthened my analysis skills, which will prove valuable no matter where life takes me!

What is your favorite Emory tradition?

My favorite Emory tradition is Songfest, which is a super fun event that takes place at the start of your first-year at Emory. Each residence hall sings and dances to Emory-themed parodies of famous songs to prove what makes their hall special. The event is so much fun to watch and take part in, and you get to make so many friends in the process!

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!
