How I’ve made the most of my Duke experience

Even before I stepped on Duke’s campus, I had been determined to explore Duke’s academic opportunities. I have taken courses in Statistics, Computer Science, Public Policy, Cultural Anthropology, Music, Global Health, and Biology. Additionally, with the help of my amazing peer advisor Katie Taylor, I was made aware of the Academic Advising network and have taken advantage of it. In terms of my extracurricular activities, I have explored Duke clubs and organizations. Most importantly, I have made the effort to interact with the diverse, dynamic, and compassionate members of the Duke community.

What I value

Faith, Family, Friends, a diverse and dynamic and supportive community, people, relationships, the Duke community.

Where I see myself after Duke

I am not very sure at this point. Hopefully, I will be interning somewhere or attending graduate school of some sort.

How I like to spend my free time

Intramural sports, hanging out with friends, playing the piano, exploring Duke’s campus and the greater Durham area, attending Duke athletic events, etc.
