What has been your most impactful class?

Introduction to International Politics has been transformative! This class sparked my enthusiasm for political science because of the incredible professors that design and teach the course.

My favorite thing to do in Atlanta is...

Trying one of the numerous coffee shops in Atlanta is a favorite activity of mine. It seems there are new places to explore every time you look. I especially love getting a drink at the sustainable Cold Brew Bar located right off the Beltline.

What is your favorite Emory tradition?

One of my favorite traditions at Emory is the annual Coke Toast in honor of the Coca-Cola founders Robert and George Woodruff. First years will raise a bottle of Coca-Cola to celebrate commencement. Then, the entire class rejoins for a final toast at graduation to celebrate once again with their Emory family.
