Duke has offered me more opportunties than I could ever have imagined and I was able to meet so many passionate friends depite our diverse backgrounds. I would suggest nver be intimidated by what's going on around you and it's also important to keep being curious and open minded. Moreover, never hesitate to reach out when you need help.
