What has been your most impactful class?

Sociology 101, with Dr. Nalkur. While I don't see myself pursuing a career in sociology, this class has been immensely helpful in reshaping my view of the world. It's made me rethink my stance on important social and political issues, and also learn much more about how our social environment and context impacts our thoughts and actions much more than we think!

My favorite thing to do in Atlanta is...

Ride a Lime on the BeltLine! This past summer, my friends and I rode Limes (electric scooters) all down the BeltLine all the way to Ponce City Market, where we shopped a little and had ice cream! Atlanta summers are pretty warm so it was nice that we had Limes to ride around on!

What is your favorite Emory tradition?

Wonderful Wednesday! I love being able to walk by Asbury Circle on my way to class and getting to see all the free stuff that is always lined up. Usually, a lot of clubs and organizations will also be promoting any upcoming events, so its a great way to find out what's going on in and around campus!

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

in Kaldi's (studying, drinking coffee, or both). One of my favorite places to hang out is the Kaldi's in the ESC, because they have a lot of special menu items- my favorite is the avocado sandwich. Kaldi's is a great place to hang out, but also has a relaxing coffee shop vibe in case you want to get some work done. The ESC is in the center of campus, so location-wise, its really convenient too!
