I graduated from Duke in 2009 with a biology and psychology double-major and a chemistry minor. I did a year off working in the Brain Tumor Center at Duke. Now I'm in medical school at THE Ohio State University :) I'm planning on going into Pediatrics.
While at Duke, my extracurriculars included doing research in olfactory genetics, playing the piano, volunteering at the Ronald McDonald House, and participating in the pre-med CAPE (Collegiate Athlete Pre-Medical Experience) program. I was also one of the program directors of FEMMES- Females Excelling More in Math, Engineering, and Science. FEMMES is an educational outreach program that encourages 4th-6th grade girls from Durham to explore their potential in STEM fields through hands-on activities at a capstone event and after-school science clubs.
I applied to be a Baldwin Scholar in hopes that I would meet many other motivated and enthusiastic young women who wanted to get the most out of their Duke experience--- and I certainly did! I'm extremely grateful to have been in such an innovative and supportive program that has linked me with amazing women.
