Erica Chin











Erica grew up in a lovely part of northern New Jersey before moving to Boston for her BFA in painting at Boston University. She is very happy to be studying at Hopkins and exploring the area. When she is not hard at work, you can find her at a museum, running, doing yoga, traveling, or spending time with friends and family.
