I am working with Duke's Talent Identification program on the campus of Wake Forest in WInston-Salem. Through my internship with this program I have been working with 12-14 year old students looking to improve their marketability when applying to college in the future, in addition to improving social skills. Prior to working with Duke TIP, I had limited experience working with young people, specifically gifted and talented students (or teenagers obviously smarter than me).

As an Multicultural Leadership Scholars Program (MLSP) Scholar, I meet once a week with my peers to discuss diversity within the Guilford community, and how we can improve our leadership skills within this community. On Sunday, October 28th, rather than meeting in our regular place in the MED, our group met in the Carnegie Room at Hege Library to see a presentation by the Friends Historical Collection (which I knew nothing about). As it turns out, we were attending the first installation of The Listening Project, Guilford’s Integration: 1962 Before and After. To be honest, I had heard little about... Continue reading
