Secondary Major: Politics, Philosophy and Law

My favorite thing to do in Atlanta is...

go out to a restaurant with my friends. There are so many great restaurants in Atlanta with so many different cuisines. Me and my friend's personal favourite cuisine is tapas and that's where we often go for birthdays and such.

What has been your most impactful class?

Philosophy 190: Flourishing and Happiness. This is the class that inspired me to double major in PPL (politics, philosophy and law). My professor in this class was great at engaging a class and was open to all different perspectives, even if they didn't correspond with his.

What is your favorite Emory tradition?

Songfest. I had such a fun time practising my hall's songfest performance and I met some of my closest friends through songfest. Unfortunately though, we ended up getting second.

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

at the library. I love to go to the reading room. The reading room is nice and quiet and the wood work in the library is so classic and beautiful.

I'm passionate about...
