Class of 2027
B.N. Duke Scholar

Hometown: Graham, North Carolina

Academic Interests: Physics

Hobbies and Interests: I quite enjoy spending time outdoors, whether it be hiking, cycling, or just reading in the shade. In addition, I love activities like sculpture, origami, painting, and baking tasty treats!

Why Duke?

The summer before application season, I had the opportunity to do a research internship with the Duke Cosmology Group, and I loved it! I greatly enjoyed the work I was doing, the research environment, and also just being on the Duke campus. As I learned more about Duke, it seemed like a great match, particularly that it specializes in the areas of physics that I’m fascinated by. I also knew that I would be applying to colleges in the fall through Questbridge, and as Duke was one of their partnered schools, I went for it!
