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

I've made the most of my Duke experience by making every day a little bit different throughout the year. Whether that be going to football games, tenting, or just taking a hammock nap in the gardens, I try to make sure that every day has something worth doing in it.

Where I see myself after Duke...

I see myself pursuing higher education after Duke for sure. After that, though, I don't have much planned. At some point in my life, I want to end up living in Spain, though.

How I like to spend my free time...

Some of my favorite past times this year have been tenting for the UNC game, playing club soccer, and experimenting with designs in the Innovation CoLab. I'm also active in Greek Life and enjoy social events.

My favorite class(es) at Duke...

My favorite classes so far have been EGR 101 with Prof. Caves and Soccer Politics with Prof. DuBois. Check out the classes that interest you!

Resources I love to use at Duke...

My favorite Duke resources are hands-down the Innovation CoLabs. Though I'm partial to the lab on West Campus and The Foundry, the Ruby Lab had some amazing designs in it and always doubled as a solid study spot.

Co-Curricular/Engagement Experiences...

I volunteer teaching piano at Durham School of the Arts, at the DurhamBike Co-op, and have interned for a Duke Medical Lab. I am also active in Greek Life and club soccer.
