What drew you to the Robertson Scholars Leadership Program?
The Robertson Program was a unique opportunity that I couldn’t find anywhere else. The first thing that stood out about the Robertson Scholars Leadership Program was the cross-campus opportunities between Duke and UNC. Both have distinctly different features from what I’ve been told, so the ability to experience both settings fit well with my love for observing different perspectives. The second feature that stood out was community summer program. The program’s dedication to service and encouragement for exploring one’s curiosities aligned with my personal values—and it gives me the chance to really hone in on a few passion projects in the Mississippi Delta and Louisiana particularly with climate work.
