I chose Earlham because...

I picked Earlham because I wanted smaller class sizes and the opportunity to establish close relationships with my professors. I thrive in a collaborative environment, and I relished the opportunity to engage in my community through the Bonner program.

The quirkiest thing I've seen at Earlham was...

Some students don't wear shoes!

My favorite class/professor is...

My favorite classes are physics and mathematics. However my favorite professor is Rachael Reavis from the Psychology department. Rachael taught me the true meaning of focus, and how much of an impact it has when it comes to having a quality academic journey. She is by far the most understanding, dedicated and passionate professor I have ever had. She sees potential in all of her students, and her focus is not only on her research and teaching, but also the excellence of her students.

My EPIC Journey...

My EPIC journey is mostly about engaging in my community through volunteering. Last summer, I completed a clinical internship in Shanghai, China, which enabled me to finally pursue medicine. I plan on doing another internship or possibly a research here in the U.S. Here is a video of my internship, check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hstMoCngxxo
