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

I have made the most of my Duke experience by getting involved with different organizations on campus, developing relationships with different types of people, balancing my academic and social life, and having spontaneous moments!

Where I see myself after Duke...

After Duke, I see myself working in engineering management, traveling the world, meeting new people, having different experiences, and being successful and happy.

How I like to spend my free time...

I like to spend my free time by hanging out with my friends in our dorms, going to various events around campus, and walking to Ninth Street to Pincho Loco (they have the best banana pudding ice cream)!

My favorite class(es) at Duke...

My favorite class at Duke are my engineering courses, such as EGR 101 and EGR 121. These hands-on courses taught me the engineering design process and exposed me to the problem solving and creative side of engineering.

Resources I love to use at Duke...

A resource that I love to use at Duke is the SPIRE program, which is an academic and mentoring support system for students majoring in STEM fields. SPIRE has helped me succeed in my courses and build connections with students and faculty.

Co-Curricular/Engagement Experiences...

On-campus I am involved in the National Society of Black Engineers, where I served as a senator on the Executive Board, Black Student Alliance Programming Committee, where I helped plan and execute events for the Black community at Duke, and Future is Now, where I mentored underrepresented girls in the Durham community. I am a Spire Fellow, which is an academic mentoring support system and living-learning community for students pursuing STEM majors.
