Duke University | Baldwin Scholars Program

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond imagination. It is our light more than our darkness which scares us.

At Duke, I tried to gain exposure to new ideas and people by finding classes and activities that I was passionate about. I am an art history major with a history minor. In the fall semester of my junior year I studied abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark. I focused on Danish Design, but my main love of the program was being in Scandinavia, and I hope to live abroad at a later stage of my life. I work in Corporate Strategy & Planning at BlackRock. Prior to my current role, I worked at Goldman Sachs in the Partners Coverage Group, which manages the finances for current and retired GS partners .

At Duke, I led tours of the Nasher, Duke's art museum, was a part of the Dukes and Duchesses program, was a member of Pi Beta Phi, as well as Order of Omega. I applied for to the Baldwin program for many reasons, but mainly because I wanted to interact with women with backgrounds different than mine, while in a supportive environment.  I believe that this group of smart and interesting young women, teachers, and advisors will greatly enrich my Duke experiences. The Baldwin Scholar Program is a unique opportunity that greatly defined my Duke experience, and I hope dynamic women continue to apply.
