at Emory University
Class of 2023
Hometown: Los Angeles, CA
My most impactful class thus far is English 101: Writing and Dissent. My class has partnered with SHINE, a volunteer organization that helps support immigrants and refugees in Atlanta. The opportunity to explore the Atlanta community from a different perspective and then reflect upon my experience is invaluable. I look forward to going to class to discuss relevant and often difficult topics within American society and then getting the chance to further my learning in a hands-on way.
Though I have only been part of the Emory community for a short while, my favorite Emory tradition that I have participated in is Songfest. The various first-year halls compete against one another in a song-and-dance competition. I made some of my closest friends through Songfest.
At the Peet’s Coffee Shop in the Woodruff Library. The bottom floor of the library is always a lively and fun environment to meet up with friends, or study.
To explore Ponce City Market. I always find new local retailers that I do not have access to at home and get to experience and try new foods and products with friends.
