In addition to being a Baldwin Scholar, I majored in Cultural Anthropology and minored in Education while at Duke. A first generation American daughter born to Trinidadian immigrants, I grew up in a multicultural, multireligious and multiethnic environment. These early childhood experiences shaped my interests and ultimately informed my major in the study of people as well as my commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion and justice.
I now work as a DEI leader within corporate, nonprofit and education spaces. I help organizations large and small with developing, implementing, and measuring DEIJ programs, policies, and practices that ultimately shift culture and center equity.
I am grateful to the Baldwin Scholars for being an invaluable support system and teaching me the immense value of mentorship. At this stage of my career, I recognize that nearly all of my most critical career opportunities have come as a result of mentoring from older women. In turn, I am committed to creating opportunities for women younger than myself!
