michelle1In a recent profile for Interdisciplinary Studies at Duke, junior Michelle Khalid described how participation in the Kenan Institute for Ethics’ DukeImmerse program changed her college and career trajectory, and helped her find an issue that she was deeply passionate about. Khalid has been a member of a KIE-affiliated Bass Connections research team as well as being a leader in the SuWA refugee community group organized by Duke students through the Institute.

Michelle Khalid’s new pathway began with one interdisciplinary program at Duke that led to others. “It was the best experience,” she says. “It taught me so much about who I am, and I figured out what I want to study—it’s truly one of those college moments when you find something you’re so passionate about. It’s just amazing.”
