Hello!! My name is Arianna Dwomoh and I am so grateful to be a part of the Baldwin Scholars Class of 2024. Being a part of such an inspiring community of driven and engaged women seems like a dream, and I can’t put into words how excited I am for the next four years with Baldwin!

My family is from Ghana, Africa, but my twin sister and I were born in England and raised in Raleigh, North Carolina. These distinct cultures have made me the person I am today, as it has shaped my thoughts, my words, and my deeds. Each culture allows me to see the world in a different light and connect with others on various levels. I can’t wait to continue to grow and discover more about myself and my identity here at Duke.

I attended Leesville Road High School for two years before attending the North Carolina School of Science and Math, a public boarding school just down the road from East Campus. At NCSSM, I discovered my love for physics and computer science, which is what I hope to major in at Duke. Although I have no idea what exactly I want to pursue after college, the intersection of physics, specifically as it pertains to our vast and mysterious universe, and computer science is something I want to learn more about.

In my free time, I love to bullet journal, sleep, listen to music, volunteer and bake. At Duke, I am involved in DukeAFRICA, Duke@Nite, Club Tennis, The Girls Club, SPIRE, and now, Baldwin!

I’m always available to chat, so feel free to reach out to me whenever: arianna.dwomoh@duke.edu!
