What drew you to the Robertson Program?

I wanted a small and close knit community within college. I found this type of community in a lot of places, but none of them felt like home. Something was missing. After discovering the Robertson program, it became clear to me that the program’s emphasis on personal growth, leadership, and being a change agent within our society were the things I needed out of a college atmosphere. The program provides both the resources and the community needed to make tangible change.

How has your experience with the Robertson shaped your goals and career path?

My experience with Robertson has allowed me to work towards my career goals of being a physician while engaging in global health policy reform. I am pursuing a major at both universities which has enabled we to learn a vast amount of information, work with a diverse group of students and learn from extremely intelligent and successful professors. I found mentors at both universities that are helping me work towards my personal, academic and professional goals.

What has been your favorite Robertson moment so far?

My favorite Robertson moment was an ice cream social at Mapleview where I was able to enjoy the company of scholars from different classes. We watched the sunset, ate ice and laughed. What could be better!
