How I’ve made the most of my Duke experience

While at Duke, I've done my best to be exposed to a diverse range of topics and people. The diversity and passion that many people in the Duke community have for their field is inspiring, and I am always seeing to meet people who can push me to go deeper into my work and make me understand why I'm doing what I'm doing.

What I value

I value honesty, humbleness, and open-mindedness.

Where I see myself after Duke

I would like to go to gradute school (hopefully somewhere abroad, or at least in a totally new city) for a masters of PhD in applied math or a related field.

How I like to spend my free time

I love reading, hiking, doing yoga, and cooking/ baking.
