Why Duke?

Everyone at Duke has a story and a passion, my conversations are never boring and everyone around me pushes me to be the best version of myself. I also chose Duke for its perfect balance between academic rigor, team spirit, and social life. I love dancing at Duke and in addition to taking dance classes have performed in faculty and MFA choreographic works, additionally I was an actress in the 2021 Me Too Monologues. I'm a member of the Club Ski Team, Mi Gente, Duke Consulting Club, an intern in Motivation and Decision Sciences Research, and lastly started my own clothing brand with a few other students here at Duke. Being a recipient of the Alumni Scholarship symbolizes me taking ownership of my own future, it reminds me that I truly can pursue any path I chose and be successful in that if I dedicate myself. It reminds me that someone at Duke believed in me, saw something in me, that I deserve my spot here, and it motivates me to make the most of this incredible opportunity everyday. I only have four years of college and I attend to make the absolute most of it, to learn, grow, and experience in every way I can, and the scholarship has made it possible to completely focus my energy on that. For fun at Duke I love to spend time with my friends, go to workout classes, try new restaurants/explore Durham, go on walks, and spend time outside.
