Hello! My name is Harmony Hill and I am so blessed and honored to be a part of the Baldwin Scholars Program and join this sisterhood!
I was born in Twentynine Palms, a small town in California, and raised by my grandmother.
Growing up I played lots of sports until about high school when I started focusing more on my academics. In my sophomore year of high school, I enrolled at my local community college, Copper Mountain Community College, and started as a concurrent enrollment student with a degree in Psychology. In my junior year of high school, I added another degree toward my path, Social and Behavioral Sciences. I also founded a club at my high school, Teens Against Sexual Harassment & Assault (TASHA) to be a support system for fellow students who have dealt with harassment and/or assault. While being active in my high school's student body and being my class president for four years, until I decided to take a break my senior year to focus more on TASHA and student government at my community college, I also volunteered regularly whether it be at my local library, food pantries, or church.
By the time my high school graduation came, I had already graduated from Copper Mountain with two Associate degrees in Psychology and Social and Behavioral Sciences along with being our Honor Graduate speaker. I was the first from my high school to ever do this! About two weeks later I graduated from high school as my Salutatorian and came to Duke in the fall.
Currently, I am an economics major, however, I know my passions lie within volunteerism and I can never push down the sports fanatic deep inside of me! So far, I have enjoyed being on the graphics team for Duke Student Government, volunteering with Puppy Kindergarten, and working in athletics.
Some of my hobbies include listening to music (I’m a huge Drake fan), eating (I love to explore new restaurants), reading (romcoms are where it’s at), and I love going to the movies!
Being a Baldwin Scholar is a privilege I’m blessed to have!
