What I love about Duke BOLD
I love hiking and leadership so as soon as I heard about this, I was hooked. Duke BOLD is an experiential leadership club that spends fall semester training together in preparation for a winter break trek, like hiking over glaciers to summit Cayambe in Ecuador. Though I wasn’t in Summit shape pre-Fuqua, just six weeks after training started, I noticed a change – visiting Olympic National Park and confidently hiking trails I wouldn’t have even attempted before. Through this group, I’ve also connected with second-year students who have helped me navigate Fuqua through long conversations on life and leadership.
