Why Duke?

I knew I needed my college years to be much more than just the classes I would take as I wanted to fully immerse myself in the Duke community, while also exploring several routes that would bring me out of my comfort zone--Duke appealed to me as just the right fit as it balanced academic rigor with a vibrant social scene really well.

After the first few months at Duke, I'd say that I have had several paradigm shifts on a lot of things--both on a personal and global scale. I have learnt to adopt a growth mindset and I feel more resilient/confident to do things that I would have normally shied away from.

I see the Karsh scholarship as a community of intellectually curious and culturally diverse students who are incredibly passionate about a broad range of societal issues. I have definitely learnt a lot from my fellow Karsh scholars and it's been really amazing being a part of this community, 

When I'm on campus, I play IM soccer, and hang out with friends for fun!
