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 while you are an undergraduate … and in your future career. The reflection work that you create now can become part of your academic portfolio and your professional resume.
