Hello! My name is Anna, I'm from St. Paul, Minnesota, and I'm majoring in public policy with a minor in German. Outside of the classroom, I am involved in The Chronicle and spend most of my time at the Sanford School of Public Policy. During my freshman year, I participated in the Global Health FOCUS cluster—an experience that provided invaluable mentorship opportunities while sparking an entirely new interest (I highly recommend it!). In 2012, I participated in DukeEngage Wentworth, South Africa during the summer and studied abroad in Berlin, Germany in the fall. I am spending summer 2013 interning in San Francisco, California.
I applied to Baldwin with hopes for a supportive community of women who would push me to be a better version of myself. The program has certainly realized those hopes, although I could not have predicted how influential it would be for me. Baldwin women have encouraged me to confidently pursue my interests, regret nothing, and seize every opportunity.
If you ever have any questions about Baldwin or Duke, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
