"The present is a process, and it is necessarily imperfect."
I learned the above during a grammar lesson in my elementary Russian class this past fall, and I've been holding on to the sentiment ever since.
My name is Audrey Adu-Appiah, and I'm a junior from Charlotte, North Carolina by way of Boston, Massachusetts (four year stint at boarding school learning how to shiver). I'm a photographer for The Chronicle, a member of Duke Debate, a lover of languages, and an English and Political Science double major. In my free time, I like to edit video, read legal blogs and feminist essays, and nurse my addiction to television (my taste ranges from the nerdy to the stylish to the gritty). I'm an avid fan of Russian literature, Woody Allen films, and folk covers of rap songs.
Thus far, the Baldwin Class of 2014 has been a continual source of support and inspiration for me as I navigate the pleasures and perils of freshman and sophomore year at Duke -- and I look forward to learning from them through senior year. If anyone (prospective freshmen, fellow Baldwins) has any questions, feel free to shoot me an email at email@example.com.
