My favorite thing to do in Atlanta is...

I love going to Ponce City market because it is a great way to explore the city and also eat amazing food. Even though I've been to Ponce more than 10 times since I've been a student at Emory, I never get bored. My favorite thing to eat at Ponce is the Ramen place!

What has been your most impactful class?

The most impactful class has been Econ 101 because while I took the class for fun, it really made me want to minor in Business. We talked about economics in real life, which brought things into perspective and even though the class had 170 students, the lectures felt like the professor was having an individual conversation with me!

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

At a cafe, listening to music and studying with my friends. I love going to Starbucks or Kaldis Depot for their vibes!

What is your favorite Emory tradition?

I absolutely loved songfest! Though the rehearsals were a little tedious at times, competing against other residence halls was so fun. Memorizing the new lyrics and dance moves with first-years in my residence hall definitely created a great bonding environment and I still remember all of the lyrics!
