What is your favorite Emory tradition?

My favorite Emory tradition is the farmers market every Tuesday on Cox Bridge. I love talking to all the vendors and buying bubble tea before class.

My favorite thing to do in Atlanta is...

Going to Ponce City Market and walking on the Beltline. I love getting food and gelato at Ponce City Market then looking at the beautiful graffiti on the Beltline. This is an amazing way to spend the weekend and get some fresh air after being cooped up in the library studying.

What has been your most impactful class?

My most impactful class has been my linguistics class because it taught me that a college is a place to explore. I took the class to fulfill a general education requirement but ended up loving linguistics. I am now thinking of adding linguistics as a minor. This class taught me the importance of exploration in college.

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