“After graduating from Emory University in December of 2020, as a proud member of Omicron Delta Kappa, I knew that I wanted to pursue a postgraduate opportunity that would allow me to further hone my leadership and professional skills. As I navigated the Schwarzman Scholars application process, I became increasingly confident that Schwarzman Scholars was the perfect opportunity. I was incredibly honored to be selected as a member of the sixth cohort of Schwarzman Scholars, and this past year spent living and studying in Beijing, China was absolutely transformational. As a scholar, I experienced immense personal growth, cultivated deep relationships with students from all over the world, gained a more nuanced understanding of China, strengthened my academic skill set, and became a more confident and self-assured leader. Applying for Schwarzman Scholars was one of the best decisions I have ever made, and I feel prepared and ready to take on my future educational and professional pursuits at Harvard Law School. I strongly urge any member of Omicron Delta Kappa interested in learning more about China, expanding your worldview, and catalyzing your own personal and professional development to apply for the program.”
