My favorite thing to do in Atlanta is...

My favorite thing to do is visit Midtown. It is a really vibrant, interesting part of Atlanta with so many different places to explore and great restaurants!

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

Probably in the law library or in the EBSU doing homework.

What is your favorite Emory tradition?

My favorite Emory tradition is the Coke Toast. To celebrate the new first-year students in the start of their journey at Emory, Emory administrators (including the President) and students gathered on the Academic Quad and drank Coca-Cola together. It is a wonderful opportunity to meet fellow classmates!

What has been your most impactful class?

My most impactful class so far has been Psych 207, Brain and Behavior, with David A. Edwards. Though a challenging and rigorous class, the material is very interesting and is a great class to take no matter your concentration or major. Mr. Edwards is a dynamic and enthusiastic teacher who is incredibly supportive and ensures his students learn thoroughly. I would definitely recommend taking a class that he teaches!
