I think it is really easy to look at people at Duke and think they have followed a linear path to where they are. However, what you know about them is never really the whole story, and it is super important to take the time to remember how winding your path is, how many dead ends there are, as everyone does this. Not a single person walks straight through their Duke experience. There is always so much about someone that you don’t know, which is a beautiful and under-appreciated aspect of our community that I know I have navigated and found a lot of comfort in.
