My name is Annie, and I am a senior at Duke! I majored in Economics and Psychology, and while I have found those to be really interesting, I think my favorite classes focused more on linguistics and language's impact on our mental structures. The best part of my Duke experience has been meeting friends who I truly value and get to have fantastic experiences and conversations with. I also love thrifting, fashion, and crafting!

Plan your joy- its something I heard Michelle Obama say. It's really easy to plan your work day, but its important to plan your joy- it makes you work harder and gives you things to look forward to. This advice has really helped me in college.
