Advice for Parents: Trust your abilities to have raised a great kid that will thrive at GT and be there to listen when they need to talk. Tech is a hard place and sometimes we just need to vent to our moms.
Favorite place on campus: The balcony behind the Ford Building. It has a great view of the city skyline.
