"And the air was full of Thoughts and Things to Say. But at times like these, only the Small Things are ever said. Big Things lurk unsaid inside" - The God of Small Things. Arundhati Roy
So what do we do? Anything. Something. So long as we just don't sit there. If we screw it up, start over. Try something else. If we wait until we've satisfied all the uncertainties, it may be too late.
Those two quotes are the premises by which I function on a day to day basis.
My experience so far at Duke has been an amazing one. I have learned about the power of reflection and am learning the importance of trusting myself. My short time as a Baldwin has impacted me immensely.
I'm a prospective Chemistry-Sociology-Women'sStudies-Globalhealth-premed-whoamikiddingihavenoidea major, who has a passion for saving the world! One day , I want to open a clinic in Rural areas of the middle east and empower women and young girls by teaching them the importance of health and education.
At Duke I am research assitant in the Duke Global Health Institute, a Rainbow volunteer at the Duke hospital, an active member of Duke Global Brigades and an english translator for a women's shelter. I love the experiences I've had at Duke so far and am excited to continue to explore my passions here.
If you have any questions about anything Baldwin or Duke related please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org! I'd love to talk
-No act of worship is as meritorious as reflection. So reflect on God’s bounties and the works of His Power, but do not try to reflect on His Essence, for you will never be able to do that. - Prophet Muhammed P.B.U.H.
