Stamps Scholar

What advice do you have for your fellow or prospective Scholars?

“Try new things, put yourself out there, and try not to let fear of failure hold you back… the worst thing that can happen when you try something new and it doesn’t work out is that you’re right back where you started and maybe a little bit wiser for it!”

What are your ideas for life after college?

“My current idea for life after college is to study cognition and its relation to performing arts. I currently do research with the theatre department on creating theatre for neurodiverse audiences, and I want to continue to explore how theatre can be made more accessible for everyone. I hope to follow this passion towards a higher education in cognition and eventually a career in creating accessible theatre.”

What is your favorite tradition at Wake?

“I love the annual “Hit the Bricks” event, where members of our community competitively run or walk laps around the Quad to raise funds for cancer research.”

Graylyn Scholar

Name an organization/club you like being involved with?

“I love being involved in the Neuroscience club because it is a great opportunity to help students learn about brain research happening on and off campus. At the same time, we bring together students from many different disciplines (like Psychology, Biology, Physics, and even Computer Science!) and help raise awareness for important issues like mental health, Alzheimer’s disease, and much more!
