Benjamin Ashby

Hello! I’m Ben. I’m coming to Duke Divinity School in an effort to strengthen my personal relationship with God, prepare for a career that tries to create small pockets of God’s kingdom on Earth, and prepare to one day adopt or intimately care for individuals with disabilities as a part of my family. I love participating in worship, either as part of the band or by singing badly from the pews. I care deeply for animals and the environment, and try to spend most of my free time in nature. I’m originally from Nebraska, studied biomedical engineering at Georgia Tech, and am finishing up medical school at UNC.
