To the world you might be one person, but to one person you might be the world.
Hi, I'm Chantel. I grew up in a small suburb of Detroit, Michigan, where I was very comfortable and one of the only minority students in my schools. Then my parents sent me to a diverse, all-girls, Catholic school an hour away from my house and pushed me far outside of my comfort zone. Since then, I have realized the value of diversity and want to be pushed outside of my comfort zone in both social and academic areas.
I loved my experience as a Baldwin. I met so many female leaders and inspiring women through this program. Baldwininfluenced everything from my friendships to my major. I was presented with so many unique opportunities by being a member of this program and I am connected to a large network of strong women. I love that I get to witness the amazing women in my Baldwin class grow and become such inspiring women.
At Duke, I was a Resident Assistant on West campus, a counselor for Know Your Status (KYS), a HIV/AIDS testing and awareness group, an undergraduate representative on the Duke Transportation Advisory Committee (DTAC), and a member of the In Motion dance group. I graduated with a BA in Psychology and with minors in Chemistry and Women's Studies and I was pre-med. After graduation, I chose to work in public health and explore my medical interests further. I worked for the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as a Public Health Associate in the mountains of Cherokee, NC for two years. I then completed a post-baccalaureate program at UNC-Greensboro to finish my pre-medical requirements and worked as a scribe for a year in Charlotte, NC. I am currently a first year student and Brody Scholar at Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University.
