How do you believe you’ll create transformational change?
I hope to effect change by building and strengthening community. The form that that takes may change, but spending time with and getting to know people will remain a priority. After all, everything worthwhile is done with others.
What drew you to the Robertson Scholars Leadership Program?
I was drawn to Robertson because I knew that the program, my peers, and UNC would challenge me. I also knew that it would enable me to pursue my passions—and try on new ones—without penalty. The people would draw me back time and time again.
How has the Robertson Scholars Leadership Program impacted your personal, professional, or leadership growth?
The program has made the life that I live possible. I have long been motivated by a need to understand the people, places, and things around me, but the program has made me think seriously about how to do that with intention. It has helped me discover and articulate what I enjoy doing and am fulfilled by.
