Favorite spot on campus...

The Duke Pond! It's a little far off, but beautiful when the sun sets.

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

Don't be afraid to reach out to peers and professors and use all the resources Duke has to offer!

Resources I love to use at Duke...

The ARC always helps me plan out how to balance my workload each semester.

My favorite class(es) at Duke...

EGR 121 with Dr. Simmons is such a great class to learn more about design and get in the mindset of being a great engineer. The Rube Goldberg machine assignment was a lot of (challenging) fun!

Co-Curricular/Engagement Experiences...

Ask me about doing an Independent Study, the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), DukeAFRICA, playing the drums for Duke Amandla Chorus, or about finding volunteering opportunities off-campus!

How I like to spend my free time ...

You will probably find me somewhere listening to some music, making playlists with my friends, going to a Duke basketball game, or exploring Durham and NC with my friends.
