Describe a problem you’ve solved or a problem you’d like to solve. It can be an intellectual challenge, a research query, an ethical dilemma - anything that is of personal importance, no matter the scale. Explain its significance to you and what steps you took or could be taken to identify a solution.
“Call 911! Jack is choking!” my mother screamed. I was five years old when my family thought my toddler brother was choking on a pretzel. In fact, Jack was having a grand mal seizure. His subsequent diagnosis of autism led to my fascination with the brain and a desire to understand how each neuron connection determines our lives – both our challenges and our triumphs. As a child, I was amazed by my parents’ explanation of how our family could help “re-wire”...

If you selected one of the computer science or engineering majors, please tell us more about what has led you to an interest in this field of study, what experiences (if any) you have had in computer science or engineering, and what it is about Yale’s program in this area that appeals to you.(Please answer in 500 words or fewer).
When people with a neurological condition go about their daily routine, they are noticed, and in my lifetime they are often embraced --- accommodations are made, from fast passes at theme parks to special sensory friendly museum days. When I see a person with special needs, I think, “How can I change not just one activity but every aspect of their life?” I aspire to be a biomedical engineer who finds ways to replace medications with medical devices.

UVA students paint messages on Beta Bridge when they want to share information with our community. What would you paint on Beta Bridge and why is this your message?
I would paint a wall of different colored puzzle pieces, such as pink to represent Breast Cancer awareness; purple for Alzheimer's; orange for Leukemia; and a special red, blue, yellow piece for Autism. A partial face is peeking out from behind the wall so that only the eyes and the top half of the nose are seen: eyebrows raised in curiosity and eyes bright with excitement at being able to see past the puzzle pieces.

My brother Jack was diagnosed with autism when he was one year old and I was five years old, making trying to find effective ways to communicate with him an important part of my entire life.

What is your favorite fiction or non-fiction work (film, book, TV show, album, poem, or play)? Why?
My favorite work is Republic by Plato - specifically the chapter entitled, “The Allegory of the Cave” - because it reinforces the social responsibility that I feel to ascend from the unknown and share what I have learned with others to improve society. Plato suggests that we can escape “the cave of ignorance” and enter the bright natural world of knowledge once we stop believing what we are simply indoctrinated to - we must consider the idea that boundaries can...

When I visited Yale last fall, I simply did not want to leave.

What has been missing in my education so far is the connection of information that can be drawn between different classes.
