Early on in my time at Duke, I met a lot of people who were involved in DUU, and they were people that I looked up to. The way in which they talked about DUU made me excited to look more into it and see what it was all about. I went to the General Body Meeting during First Big Week and applied to the First-Year Intern (FIP) Program because I thought it would be a good way to get involved very quickly. I also started showing up to Special Events meetings to get my foot in the door, start learning  and just put myself out there.  I was the Non-Programming FIP, continued on SPEV, and went from there!
