Greetings! My name is Matthew O’Stricker, and I am a Junior from Atlanta, GA, with a passion for business and social impact work. There exists a beauty in creating positive change and providing opportunities for others, and I am blessed to be in roles allowing me to do so. I currently serve as the Student Director at a Durham-based nonprofit that specializes in empowering local 9th-12th grade students with the tools and resources to effectively develop a start-up commercial or social enterprise. On campus, I serve as a Senator in the Campus Life Committee in Duke Student Government, member of the President’s Advisory Committee on Black Affairs for Duke University, and a prospective member of Duke’s Collegiate 100 Black Men. I plan to pursue consulting upon graduation. “You never know who you touch. You never know how or when you'll have an impact, or how important your example can be to someone else.” ~ Denzel Washington
