What has been your most impactful class?

Linguistics 340 with Dr. McLarty was, dare I say, the most impactful class I have taken at Emory. Besides awakening my newfound love of linguistics, learning about the processes which underlie language and how we use it to index our identity has helped me develop a greater degree of cultural and self-awareness.

My favorite thing to do in Atlanta is...

going to Atlantic station and doing my bi-weekly clothes shopping (which is really just window shopping) and stopping by this Indian food place called "NaanStop" (highly recommend the Lamb Curry and in-House Chai!).

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

at the campus Starbucks and/or my residential hall lounge. Being in my room makes me feel tired which sucks because I love being productive. Seeing everyone active as they pass me by makes me want to do things too.

What is your favorite Emory tradition?

Definitely has to be Dooley's week. I honestly just love all the free merch they give us (and free food... who doesn't like free food).

I'm passionate about...

Cooking/Baking I love learning about different cultures. Undergraduate Research I like learning new languages or skills Community Engagement sociolinguistics
