What has been your most impactful class?

The most impactful class I have taken at Emory is PSYC 110 with Dr. Kazama. This class singlehandedly inspired my newfound interest in psychobiology and neuroscience, prompting me to change my major to NBB. I always looked forward to going to this class (even though it was at 8:30am) and Dr. Kazama made the material so fun and interesting to learn. Dr. Kazama also helped me get my research position studying PTSD with the Grady Trauma Project which has been a tremendous learning experience so far!

My favorite thing to do in Atlanta is...

My favorite thing to do in Atlanta is explore Ponce City Market and go on long walks in Piedmont Park with my friends, especially during the fall season when all the leaves are changing colors. I have had so much fun exploring the different restaurants and shops around Atlanta and the weather has been such an amazing transition from the unfortunate weather in my hometown of Cleveland.

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

On a random weekday, you will most likely find me at the on-campus Starbucks doing homework, hanging out with my friends around campus, or working out at the gym. I also love taking walks in Lullwater Park and exploring the different study spots around campus.

What is your favorite Emory tradition?

My favorite Emory tradition is SongFest! I had such an amazing time getting to know other people in my residence hall during practices and the whole process of preparing and performing our songs/dances was definitely one of my top 5 best experiences at Emory.
