Arbre’ya Lewis
Duke University
Hello, my name is Arbre'ya Lewis. As a first generation, low-income, minority student, I recognized early the incredible power that comes with the resources & knowledge of a college advisor. In 2018, after graduating from Duke University, I became an advisor at a high school in Durham, NC so I could be that much needed resource for local students. After serving as the advisor for over 800 junior & senior students from 2018-19, I left for graduate school. My time at Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University allowed me to pursue my other professional interests as I obtained my Master's in Public Health. I currently work full time as a Health Communications Specialist, with a focus in cancer prevention. I'm driven daily by my desire to pursue equitable health & education for all. On that note, I am the founder of P.O. Purpose, Inc. a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering minority students to pursue their purpose through higher education. I have found incredible value in being intentional and thoughtful throughout the college admissions journey to ensure you make the best choice for yourself. Over time, I developed a knack for mentoring and walking students through the best options considering their individual wants & needs. As a communications specialist, I'm pretty savvy with essay editing too ;)
