What drew you to the Robertson Scholars? 

I was drawn to the Robertson Scholars Leadership Program because of the summer opportunities, cross-campus engagement, and sense of community. I believe that Summer is an important time for intellectual development. The Robertson Scholars Leadership Program with its community, exploration, and launch summers provide a structure for me to continue learning year-round and utilizing the information I learn in the classroom to instill lasting change. Taking classes at both Duke University and the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill is an invaluable resource. Beyond taking classes, being a Robertson affords me the opportunity to fully invest myself in both communities.
