Why Duke?

In high school, I spent a good amount of time researching universities and what they had to offer. Finally, I found that Duke had an amazing community in addition to great academic opportunities. The process of working towards this goal, getting into Duke, became a great part of my personal growth; I learnt I could turn my ideas and dreams into reality with hard and smart work. I realized there are many opportunities in the world, and it is up to me to find and achieve them.
