Why I volunteer to mentor students: 

A big reason I decided to become a professor was to mentor and work with students. I wouldn’t have a job at an amazing university like Duke if it were not for the students here, so I am thankful for them every day. Not only do I get to help students find the support they need and their individual pathways to success, but they also teach me new things about our own social world that I get to incorporate into my own research. It is the students I get to know here at Duke that make me excited for my career going forward—they help me see things in a whole new way.
