Sharing Your Experience with Others

When you return to Duke after a summer of DukeEngage service, you may decide you want to tell your story to others. Writing, illustrating, video, photography — these are all excellent options for deeper reflection. They're also valuable materials that will contribute to your personal brand — now as an undergraduate ... and in your future career. The reflection work that you create now can become part of your academic portfolio and your resume.
