It's difficult to believe that more than six years have passed since I joined the Baldwin Scholars program. Reflecting upon the years at Duke and my involvement in the program, I can say that they have been profoundly influential. The Baldwin Scholars program became the structure of my undergraduate years, giving me an incredible network of peers and professors who I now consider my friends and role models. 


I graduated with a degree in cultural anthropology and focused my research on visual anthropology, specifically on photography. After graduation, I became a Lewis Hine Fellow and worked in Lynn, Massachusetts for 10 months. The Hine Fellowship, organized by the Center of Documentary Studies at Duke, pairs recent graduate students with non-profit organizations to work together in documentary projects. I worked with a wonderful arts organization called Raw Art Works


In 2013 I went back to Colombia for a year. I did some freelance work and traveled a bit. I am now back in North Carolina, completing a masters in viual communication at UNC-Chapel Hill. Feel free to contact me directly, follow the blog or check my website for updates.
