Scholar Profiles

Nicolas Pardo

Campus: Duke
Hometown: Charlotte, NC
High School: Hawthorne Academy of Health Sciences

I don’t think a resume will tell you more about who I am. I am driven by growth, by being a better person tomorrow than I am today. I am driven by knowing that I am not the same person I was a year ago; the decisions I make will define the person I am a year from today. I want to be a leader in hispanic and queer community building and lean into my academic interests including biomedical engineering and sociology.

What drew you to the Robertson Program?

I was drawn to the Robertson Program by the diversity of interests of every Scholar from community service to debate and biology to sociology. I was intimidated and intrigued by all the different and amazing things the Scholars are doing, and I wanted to be a part of it. I also wanted a program that would enrich my undergraduate experience through interesting and unique summer experiences.
