What has been your most impactful class?

My first-year seminar and writing course! My first-year seminar was Canine Cognition with the famous dog psychologist Gregory Berns. He is the only person who has successfully imaged a dogs brain in an MRI machine. He invited me to view one of the imaging sessions where I saw the process of getting the trained dog into the narrow space. My first-year writing class was a medical writing course where we primarily focused on Dr. Mukerjee's fine work: The Emperor of All Maladies. It is now my favorite book and I have a very strong relationship with my teacher from that class.

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

I will probably be in Lullwater Preserve on a dog walk, as I have an emotional support dog on campus (Baxter, I love you). If i'm not there then I'm either in the Atwood Chemistry Building in the corner seat on the 3rd to 5th floor looking out onto all my fellow chemistry friends; it truly is the best study spot. If i'm not there, I am at Kaldi's Coffee taking pictures of everything I order because I'm a #kaldisambassador

My favorite thing to do in Atlanta is...

I love taking the Emory Shuttle to different nail salons in Atlanta. I have what some would call an addiction to getting my nails done, so through this I've mastered the shuttle system. I've gone to North and South Dekalb, Piedmont, and Toco Hills. If you ever need help with the Emory shuttle system, let me know!

What is your favorite Emory tradition?

My favorite Emory tradition has to be Songfest. Songfest is a competition where first-year students sing and dance to choreographed songs explaining why their residence hall is the best hall. As a first-year I lived in Harris hall. We were the definition of small but mighty. We conjoined with Alabama Hall and made "AlaHarris" Hall... and we won Songfest!
