Favorite spot on campus...

Duke Gardens. They're truly a magical escape from the busy student life at Duke. Go explore the bamboo forest and walk across the red bridge in the Japanese Garden, or picnic with friends in the main field!

Advice I would tell my first-year self...

It's OK that classes are super challenging and that you're having a hard time juggling school and everything outside of school! Even seniors are still figuring out the best routine, studying practices, and work-life balance that works for them (myself included)! It's a constant learning process, so be kind to yourself.

Resources I love to use at Duke...

Peer tutoring through Duke's Academic Resource Center, Wilson Gym's classes, office hours, the Wellness Center, and the Co-Lab.

My favorite class(es) at Duke...

EGR101 was my first taste of the engineering design process, and I loved it. I was even able to continue my project freshman spring and travel to Houston, Texas to present at a conference! BME244 confirmed that biomedical engineering was where I belonged, and learning about organs as engineering principles, for example, the heart as a pump was fascinating. Lastly, for any BME students looking to enter the industry after graduation, I would highly recommend the BME Design Fellows program, where you learn applicable engineering skills and get to prototype and design to solve real-world problems.

Co-Curricular/Engagement Experiences...

Duke Engineers for International Development (DEID), Bass Connections, Muser, TAing, Selective Living Groups, Duke Basketball Tenting, & Pre-orientation programs. I wasn't able to travel for Duke Engage or study abroad due to COVID-19, but I went through the application processes and would love to answer any questions about those programs if you have any.

How I like to spend my free time...

Going to campus events and performances, playing tennis or taking classes at Wilson Gym, tenting for Duke basketball, road-tripping, and going to concerts in the Triangle area.
