What Does the Robertson Scholars Leadership Program mean to you?

The Robertson Program took me down a journey of gathering more experiences in 4 years than I could have ever imagined. I co-led a team researching poverty in India, I taught science in New Orleans, I studied product design in Sweden, I took courses in economics, creative writing and jazz at UNC. Steve Jobs says that leadership and creativity are about connecting the dots: the more dots you have, the easier it is to connect them and that you can only connect the dots looking backwards, never forwards. The Robertson Program propelled me towards four years of garnering dots all over the globe. Many connections have already been made and I know that many more are yet to come.

What Does the Robertson Scholars Leadership Program mean to you?

Being a Robertson means that no matter what you pursue, you are actively thinking about how you can use your skills, ideas, and passions to make the biggest possible contribution to your community. It means not just striving for success, but striving to contribute.

What Does the Robertson Scholars Leadership Program mean to you?

Opportunity - I would not be where I am today without the generosity of the Robertsons. I could not have gone to Duke without the Robertson scholarship. And the mentorship from Robertson staff and internship experiences dramatically shaped who I am and what I do.

What Does the Robertson Scholars Leadership Program mean to you?

Everything. The Robertson Program profoundly impacted my ability to pursue my professional goals. The opportunities during summers provided exposure and preliminary preparation for a career in public health. The Robertson scholarship afforded freedom from university debt, which made it possible to fearlessly pursue my dreams.

What Does the Robertson Scholars Leadership Program mean to you?

The Robertson has given me a confidence in myself and ability to pursue my passions I could not have imagined. That confidence comes primarily from recognizing the work of the incredible people who have invested in me throughout my life and understanding the many opportunities I have had. The Robertson instilled in me a humble gratitude for these blessings, the value of which I may never fully recognize.

What Does the Robertson Scholars Leadership Program mean to you?

The Robertson Scholars Leadership Program literally changed my life. It introduced me to a community of inspiring individuals, funded experiences that pushed my boundaries and fostered deep personal growth, and, best of all, constantly encouraged me to reflect on how I could use this incredible investment to be a force for good in the world.

What Does the Robertson Scholars Leadership Program mean to you?

It means having a fluid identity, in all the best ways. You learn to belong on two campuses that think they're incredibly different (in some ways, they are; in more ways, they're not). You learn to attempt (and sometimes fail) to be a respectful and curious citizen of the world by travelling, where identities swirl into being a tourist versus a semi-permanent local, being a student versus being a professional, being apprehensive of the unknown versus fearful of missing out on a transformational moment.

What Does the Robertson Scholars Leadership Program mean to you?

It means I'm supposed to act on my passions and rise to the challenge of doing good / impacting the lives of others along the way. Being a Robertson has trained me to make "doing good" a natural part of my life, not something that seems like a task or obligation.
