Moments of Rising to the Moment

In this first installment of a new series, Qintian Zhang (Trinity ’22), current Team Kenan student and alum of Project Change and the Ethics, Leadership & Global Citizenship FOCUS cluster, discusses her work on campus in response to the widespread disruptions caused by COVID-19. Zhang’s perspective on the moment is informed by her longer relationship with what is now a pandemic: she is from Wenzhou in Zhejiang province, among the hardest hit Chinese provinces outside of Hubei. Unable to go home, she is working with multiple partners across the Duke community to respond to the situation here. Qintian has become involved with mutual aid and community building efforts among several different communities on campus.
