Honestly, had I not come to Duke, I would have accomplished 10% of what I have this past year. I have taken it upon myself to sign up for every possible I&E opportunity and to learn from everyone along the way—students, professors, mentors, and people in the community. I have always felt that everyone is invested in my success, and this includes my classmates.
