In what way has your experience as a Robertson Scholar challenged you the most?

By intentionally putting me in places I never would have ended up otherwise, the Robertson program challenged me to adapt to new environments and people.


Please share an example of how one of your summer experiences impacted your leadership.

Working in Indonesia, due to both the physical distance and the time difference, I had to learn to be self-reliant in the field. Working with my field team, I grew confident in my leadership abilities as we worked to solve problems on our own.


If you had one piece of advice for future Robertson Scholars, what would it be?

Intentionally push yourself into spaces that will be difficult, and in doing so force yourself to grow past your current limits.
