Duke was my childhood dream school. As I grew up and looked more into what I wanted to do, it shifted out of focus. It wasn't until my later in my senior year that the vision came into focus. If you would have told me I would be going to Duke at any other point in high school, I probably wouldn't have believed you simply because I thought I'd be in LA or New York. It was only during my senior year that I learned Duke offers numerous programs and experiences for not only film but many other majors as well. So I decided to apply, and luckily was blessed with the B.N Duke Scholarship, which made my choice to forgo New York or California that much easier. For me, Duke felt like home, so it was a clear choice.
