Ritika Saligram

I'm a sophomore majoring in political science, and I'm really passionate about national security issues, nuclear policy, and music! You can always find me with a cup of coffee and/or a piece of cake. I really love cake.

L's Taken


"Thank you for applying but..."


Thing I thought I'd finish but never did

  • All of the books I started to write and never got back to


Everyday L's of life

On the Bright Side


Memories I made when I wasn't working/studying


Thing I've learned that will still matter in 10 years

  • Strong relationships that are built on actual substance, not transactions


TV shows, movies, and books I've enjoyed

  • Sherlock 

  • Great British Bake Off 

  • The Harry Potter series (visual and text!)


Thing I'm proud of that you won't see on my resume

  • I've learned how to really listen to people and value the fact that they're sharing with me!


Unconventional skill

  • I can eat a pint of ice cream in 15 minutes!


Quirk that makes me who I am

  • I love Harry Potter more than any other person you will ever meet in your life


Small joys in my life

  • Music. Music is so complex and beautiful and full of surprises you didn't even know could exist. It's a small thing but it brings me so much joy. 

  • Dessert!


Obstacle I've overcome

  • Anxiety, depression, and so many other mental health challenges


Thing I've done that pushed me out of my comfort zone

  • Asking for help... with anything. But it's always worth it in the end.


Failure that seemed like the end of the world back then but doesn't matter in hindsight

  • Not getting into an Ivy League.... but Duke is better :)


Leaps of Faith


Life events that have made me stronger
