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

On a random day, you'll probably find me on the first floor of The Woodruff library in the small booths at a the back. I spend most of my time in my little area doing any homework I have or just online shopping.

What is your favorite Emory tradition?

My favorite Emory tradition would definitely have to be our homecoming week or the Coke Toast during the beginning of the school year. This is where I was able to meet so many new people and create long lasting friendships. The homecoming week events are definitely my favorite considering we have an amazing concert and fun little events throughout the week!

My favorite thing to do in Atlanta is...

As an Atlanta native, my favorite thing to do in Atlanta would definitely be going out to Midtown and exploring. There's so much to Atlanta that I haven't even see yet so I love to just go out with my friends and explore all that Atlanta has to offer wether that be a new restaurant or coffee shop.

What has been your most impactful class?

My most impactful class so far would have to be my first-year seminar on Fake News taught by Dr. Miller. This class was very small which led us all to form such a close bond with each other as well as being able to have long conversations about current news and political views that affect us as a society.
