Participating in the ACE program this summer is a top priority of mine due to the unique experience of spending time with other student athletes from Duke and Stanford as we get to immerse ourselves in a beautiful culture. ACE allows me to give back to other communities and for other communities to teach me about parts of the world unknown to me. I am able to find challenges, happiness, and fulfillment mentally, physically, and socially through the ACE program.
