How I've made the most of my Duke experience...

I've stepped out of my comfort zone by trying new things! I have loved being a part of strong female communities, especially those surrounding women in STEM. I've also made connections with faculty and peers to support me through my undergraduate journey and beyond.

Where I see myself after Duke...

I still don't know (and that is OK)! I think it would be interesting to combine skills from my engineering major and my psychology minor to explore areas like human factors engineering or user experiences with technology.

How I like to spend my free time...

I love running, baking, and exploring Durham's many restaurants!

My favorite class(es) at Duke...

Materials Science (ME 221) and Educational Psychology (PSY 240).

Resources I love to use at Duke...

The Career Center and the Wellness Center

Co-Curricular/Engagement Experiences...

Duke Sheroes Club Executive Board, Undergraduate Teaching Assistant, Duke Women's Club Lacrosse, Greek Life
