Felicia Wang

Hello hello! I'm Felicia and I love 3 AM conversations with strangers in the common room, snowball fights in snowstorms, slam poetry, and scuba diving. Tbh, I would rather be underwater rn. I am passionate about environmental conservation and promoting the arts. I also believe that people are inherently blank slates and am vehemently against putting people in boxes (such as with majors.)

L's Taken


"Thank you for applying but..."

  • oh, literally everything

  • every single Ivy + Stanford + MIT

  • every single boarding school I applied to except Taft (I applied TWICE too - I didn't get into anything the first year and just Taft the second year)

  • almost every internship I have ever applied for since high school, which is a number on the 10^2 order of magnitude

  • Global Leadership Institute program at Taft

  • Huang Fellows, Robertson, duArts FYI, the list goes on


Things I thought I'd finish but never did

  • a course on data science I started in high school

  • half of my blog posts and poem ideas 

  • 90% of the books people recommend to me 

  • this poetry workbook I have - but I'm slowly getting there!

  • my linear algebra + topology independent study project senior year of high school - didn't even make it past chapter 2


Everyday L's of life

  • not getting enough sleep

  • eating anywhere between 0-2 meals a day because I forgot or I don't have time

  • not waking up early enough to workout/run and then not having time to do it later in the day

  • unintentionally skipping lecture because my brain is absolutely fried

  • forgetting to put something on my Anti-Resume so I had to text Sarah to add it after I'd already submitted it

On the Bright Side


Memories I made when I wasn't working/studying

  • Sunday night baking w the girls + Andrew + Dan

  • pretending our lives are a musical with Sophie Rees

  • Secret Hitler/cards/Ticket to Ride/frisbee with the high school friends

  • sitting on the ground with Abby Hjelmstad because we are both anti-table/chair

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


TV shows, movies, and books I've enjoyed

  • Silicon Valley

  • South Park

  • The Good Place

  • The Queen's Gambit

  • Community

  • Avatar: The Last Airbender

  • A Gentleman in Moscow

  • every MCU movie

  • The Overstory

  • everything my sister makes me watch/read with her because it's my little sister


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

  • our tent decorations + sitting first row at the Duke-UNC game this year even though we lost :( (tbh this is my biggest flex)

  • every time I make my friends laugh with my ridiculous antics and tom-foolery

  • everything my little sister does - all her dancing and martial arts and academic work and xc running, everything

  • raising my little sister - putting that girl to bed every night is perhaps the most exhausting, difficult task one can face


Things I want to get better at

  • jazz improvisation

  • painting people, especially faces

Things I'm looking forward to in the future


Small joys in my life

  • the weather in Durham is absolutely fantastic

  • all the TREES

  • the excitement I get when I wake up and realize that it's time to eat breakfast because I'm hungry af


  • bodies of water

  • my little sister's origami decorating my room

  • the sky 

  • food

  • funky earrings

  • and TREES (did I say that already?)


Obstacle I've overcome

  • this really strange, niche type of anxiety where my body would not function before math competitions/exams


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

  • join jazz band despite being only trumpet and one of two females, and not having picked up my trumpet in three years

  • start a painting commissions business

  • join xc in high school

  • join intramural ice hockey in high school


Failures that seemed like the end of the world back then but don't matter in hindsight

  • don't laugh but not qualifying for AIME freshman year killed me lol

  • every time I messed up in jazz band rehearsal last semester (was a lot!)

  • my first anxiety attack but now I know that no matter what I'll be okay :)

Ways I take care of myself

Unconventional skills
