What drew you to the Robertson Program? 

Everything! Through a wide range of both domestic and international experiences, mentorship, and access to two campuses, the Robertson provides unparalleled opportunities for personal growth and exploration. It encourages students to be curious, engage thoughtfully, and dream bigger – all in the company of a diverse community of scholars.

How has your experience with the Robertson shaped your goals and career path?

The Robertson Program has enabled me to embrace my college experience to the fullest. It has challenged me to think globally and creatively about my interests in health and education – and led to projects and organizations that have been personally and professionally defining for me. My experiences within this program have also taught me to embrace the unexpected and choose adventure.

Favorite Robertson moment?

Community Summer in Tarboro was full of special moments! Picking okra at sunrise. Petting baby kangaroos. Dancing with my students at Freedom School. And countless meaningful conversations with my housemates and members of the community.
