Why Duke?

I chose Duke because I know that I will be challenged in ways I have never been before, and while that sounds scary, the challenges to come will allow me to gain skills and improve my work ethic. Knowing this makes me feel that I will be prepared for whatever life brings me in the future. 

Also, being offered the B.N. Duke Scholarship has further confirmed my beliefs. Being a B.N. Duke scholar means more opportunities for community service, studying abroad, and networking. It also means that Duke saw something extra special in me, and that means a lot. 

On campus, I plan on getting involved in raising awareness for mental health and joining groups for students on the premed track. I also plan on joining a dance group and finding some friends to practice some calligraphy and art with!
