NOTABLE QUOTES:

It was a matter of just focusing and narrowing down her interests and passion.
When I went to go visit Penn, it had everything I wanted!
I think it was great because even though there are pictures and videos, actually going to the place was a different experience like actually being able to speak to students one on one or without the gaze of a camera looking in. It just made everything more genuine.
If there is something that you love, you should definitely pursue that path.
At the end of the day, you’re just saving yourself more time by starting off looking into the things that you’re interested in.
To the extent possible, do not stress.
I don’t think where I am now is what 9th grade me would’ve said. My plan just kind of blew up along the way but things ended up working out!
Put your best foot forward and things have a strange way of working out even if it’s a completely weird turn that you never expected.
Stressing out doesn’t really do anything.
Just as a recap, Penn is a great school!
