We are the young women who are members of the Polished Pebbles College Edition @ Duke University, this blog is an outlet for sharing information, and a platform to share our experiences as young women of color on Duke’s campus.

Our goal in Polished Pebbles is simple: creating a network of support for young women of color as they pursue leadership opportunities, higher education and career goals. In this self-discovery journey, the Duke University Women’s Center has partnered with Polished Pebbles, an organization based in Chicago, here to empower 20 college women to thrive and flourish on Duke University’s campus, and beyond!  Our primary objectives in this year-long mentoring experience include:

·         Improve communication skills with a variety of audiences

·         Develop a positive sense of self while matriculating as a Duke student

·         Explore diverse career opportunities for career readiness

·         Connect with a support network and role models on Duke’s campus and beyond
