How has being an Evolutionary Anthropology graduate from Duke helped shape you personally and/or professionally?

"Has instilled in me an appreciation for science and nature. The training in anatomy helped with me understanding neuropsychology (I am now a psychotherapist)."

What advice would you give students in Duke's Evolutionary Anthropology programs? 

"Pursue your interests and do not give up on yourself. Resilience and perseverance are the keys to success with any endeavor."
