Katerina never considered herself smart, even after being accepted to JHU. Her lack of self-confidence led her to eventually fail Organic Chemistry in her sophomore year, causing her to consider leaving JHU altogether. It wasn't until retaking the course with Dr. Falzone that she learned not only of her true potential to succeed academically but also of her ability to help other students achieve their goals too. She became a tutor for the Johns Hopkins Learning Den in 2015, and has tutored hundreds of students ever since. Professionalism to a tee, great creativity and never without a smile, Katerina hopes to keep inspiring students to dream big and never stop believing in themselves.
