I stay inspired by spending my days in the DUU office in a normal pre-pandemic year, surrounding myself with creatives. I remain open to trying new things creatively, listening to other people’s recommendations music and podcast-wise, not being tied to what I already know I like. 

I also gain inspiration from the outdoors. I work at the rock climbing wall through Duke Rec and also spend time in the outdoor outcomminty to get a reset and refocus my attention at Duke, both academically and through a life-perspective. 

In terms of podcast recommendations, anything by Brenè Brown is phenomenal. I can also always go for a true crime podcast, it’s like a movie for your ears!
