"I applied to serve on the Board in hopes of serving in a meaningful and intentional manner. One that I hope will lift a variety student perspectives and experiences to the Board to provide context that can aid in making Duke a better place than when I first stepped foot on campus. My hope would be to serve in the position by redefining what it means to provide a grounds eye and current Duke perspective."
