“The Young Scholars Ambassador Program has changed the way I look at the world positively. The seminars are what have helped me the most . . . These taught me how to become a better person and deeply influenced my thinking in terms of improving my charity.”
“Although a few years have passed since I aged out of the Young Scholars program, I will never forget everything the Davidson Institute has done for me and for my family. This group has given me the confidence to face even the toughest of challenges, and has made me both strong and proud of who I am. The strength of the other scholars is breathtaking, and I thank this group for teaching me so much.”
I am now pursuing a Ph.D. in chemistry at Northwestern, working on cutting-edge nanochemistry at one of the finest research institutions in the world. I have no idea if I’d be here without my experience at Davidson’s THINK Summer Institute . . . but when I teach general chemistry, I look back to my teachers at THINK as an example of how to connect with my students and help them understand why what they are studying matters.
