My name is Kristen Larson and I am a proud member of the Baldwin Scholars Class of 2017! I am a North Carolinian that hails from the city of Goldsboro, and a graduate of the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics (NCSSM). I am a putative Pre-med, Global Health and Biology double major, with a deep interest in lab work, social entrepreneurship, and rural health disparities. Although my experience at NCSSM has shaped my passion for science, I nurture a love for the humanities and performing arts. At Duke, I am a standing member of the Honor Council, an Alto II in the University Chorale, and a volunteer at many service events on and off campus.
I treasure the diversity, curiosity, and solidarity of the Baldwin community. Within the broader Duke community, the Baldwin Scholars are a close group of women from all walks of life. There is no singular definition of a Baldwin Scholar
