What drew you to the Robertson Scholars? 

I was enticed by the Robertson Scholars Leadership Program as it is a unique opportunity to develop as a leader and make an impact for the societal good, while pursuing my studies at two prestigious institutions, which prioritize the success and growth of their students. I am also enthused about broadening my horizons, stretching boundaries, and growing in the milieu of stimulating interactions with other esteemed Robertson Scholars, alumni, and staff across Duke University and UNC Chapel Hill. I am looking forward to the dynamic discussions of diverse perspectives with my Robertson Scholar peers.
