“Smile...It Confuses People”- Sandi Thom

Hello! My name is Lexia Chadwick and I am from Dallas, Texas. I am so thrilled and honored to have been selected as a 2015 Baldwin Scholar. These four years are definitely going to be amazing! I am premed and plan to earn a Global Health certificate and minor in Chemistry. My major is undecided. I want to be a surgeon one day, and eventually write and teach surgery.

My faith in God is the most important thing to me; it always keeps me going. My mom has always pushed me to do well in school, and I thank her for being such an inspiration. There a lot people who have helped me along the way, and my dream is to make all of them proud.

My favorite things include baking cakes, singing Broadway and Country songs, theatre, shopping and reading anything by Jodi Picoult. RENT is my favorite musical and track is the only sport I’ll watch on TV. I really enjoy living in Bell Tower, it makes the whole ‘dorm thing’ easy. I love being with friends and conversing in general. I am always smiling and laughing about something.

I can’t wait to get to know my fellow Baldwins and other Duke students. I really enjoy meeting new people, so please feel free to talk to me on campus, find me on Facebook, or email.  See you soon! J
