How has being an English graduate from Duke University helped shape your professional success?: 
Because of my experience as a Duke English graduate, I leaped into the retail world with effective communication skills and the ability to connect with anyone I encountered. Through an array of classes (including a seminar focused on D.H. Lawrenceäó»s works to an in-depth study of influential African-American authors), I was able to develop a distinct point of view and became more knowledgeable about the human condition. Retail trends and strategies are constantly changing, but I am firmly planted in the ways I speak, write, and, most importantly, listen. These powerful tools inform my future potential to transform into an unstoppable force.
