High School: The Blue Coat School

What drew you to the Robertson Program?

I was drawn to the program because it is such a unique opportunity to have access to the vast array of resources of two incredible universities in Duke and UNC. The summer programs were also a big factor for me – having such a strong support network from the program in both the planning and realization of incredible, life-changing summer experiences is something I will be forever grateful for. Most important, I was drawn to the program because of the Robertson community – the program has such a tight knit community of scholars that have inspired and pushed me to be the best person of myself possible.

What has been your favorite Robertson moment so far?

My favorite moment has to be Community Summer. I’ll forever cherish the memories I made with all of the other scholars in New Orleans, and living together over those 8/9 weeks made us all so appreciative of each other and the Robertson community that we are so fortunate to be a part of. It really was a summer that I will never forget.
