What has been your most impactful class?

My most impactful class was my African Politics class with Dr. Shomade. It was a discussion based class with only six people, so we really had the opportunity to shape the curriculum around own individual learning styles and learn from each other.

My favorite thing to do in Atlanta is...

I love walking the belt-line after lunch at Ponce City Market. The shops are always lively and it's nice to end the day with a walk and a good view of the city.

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

On the ESC patio - Atlanta weather is the best for studying outside, and the ESC patio has one of the best views of campus. It's also right next to Kaldi's coffee shop, so a snack break is never far away!

What is your favorite Emory tradition?

The Tuesday farmers market! Cox bridge is always so lively on Tuesday afternoons, and it's such a great time to catch up with friends in between classes. All of food is locally grown or freshly cooked, and there's something for everyone!
