Who was your favorite music artist the year you graduated?
Where was your favorite hangout spot at Hopkins High School?
As a cross country and track athlete, I spent a lot of time on the track.
How did Hopkins prepare you for the future?
Hopkins offered ProPEL, a program that allowed high school seniors to shadow or work alongside professionals in their field of interest. I spent my time with a school psychologist learning what her job entailed and how she did it. The experience provided me with a unique learning experience. While I didn’t pursue a career as a school psychologist, the experience underscored my interest in understanding behavior — my first clue of my interest in the neurological underpinnings of behavior.
