Unlike any other school, everyone I talked to from Duke had the same word to describe their experience: happy. A simple word, but one that made me sure Duke was the right fit for me. Here, I get to explore my passions inside and outside the classroom, within a truly collaborative community. Plus, I loved the interdisciplinary approach of the Trinity curriculum and the opportunities made available to us even before arriving on campus. Being a Karsh scholar also means Duke trusts my potential, and further enriches my college journey by giving me the chance to represent my country and learn from a diverse cohort!
