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 take two gap years to work in public health before applying to medical school. I am working for the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as a Public Health Associate in the mountains of Cherokee, NC for the next two years. I am currently starting the application process for MD/MPH school and want a dual degree in medicine and public health. I hope to one day be a public health physician in an underserved community.
