B.A. Public Policy, Visual Media Studies Minor, and Markets and Management studies certificate
I love modern dance.
My life before college was dominated by track and field, schoolwork, and my job at Kroger. Coming to Duke allowed me to explore my interests because I started fresh and got to choose new activities. I joined Black Student Alliance where I helped to coordinate the annual Black Student Alliance Invitational. I was also selected to be a financial analyst for Duke University Union, for the Coffeehouse committee where I monitor the funds utilized in their operations. Also, I serve as the co-director of marketing for Black in Business. For the summer, I did DukeEngage Miami, which focused on strengthening immigrant communities and promoting social justice where I worked alongside lawyers to assist them with their cases. I am interested in Finance, specifically global markets as a career after graduation. I hope to achieve this by concentrating on economic policy with my degree from Duke, and although I don’t want to pursue a career in policy, I want to utilize the purpose of the degree after retirement with nonprofit work.
My favorite thing about SPIRE is the flexibility that the organization has, which pushes me to pursue my interests past STEM because we focus a lot on belonging and happiness.
