The PathWays Fellowship is a one-year residential discernment program designed for recently graduated Duke alumni. This is the thirteenth year the PathWays House has been home to students living in the West End neighborhood of Durham. Those living in the house have committed to the PathWays Household Covenant of daily prayer, weekly meals, fellowship, service, and friendship in Durham.

Duke Community and Family Medicine
Sarah is originally from Villanova, PA. She graduated from Duke with a double major in global health and biology and a minor in chemistry. During her time at Duke, she was involved in the Presbyterian Campus Ministry where she served as service chair and moderator, the Duke Global Health Institute where she did research on maternal reproductive health in Haiti, and Duke’s Model UN team. Given her interest in family medicine, she decided to work with Duke Community and Family Medicine to learn more about community health outreach and programming efforts in Durham. She is excited to further her involvement in the Durham community and reflect on how to bridge her passions for service, faith, and medicine in her future vocation.
Maria Luisa is from São Paulo and grew up in Houston, Texas. Her Brazilian-American experience combined with her degree in Arabic and Asian and Middle Eastern studies compel her to be a documentarian, listening to and recording stories that give witness to God's glory. At Duke, she served as the Lecture Series student director for the Duke Catholic Center and founded Hear at Duke, a storytelling organization that produces podcasts and live storytelling events on campus. This year she is excited to be working for StoryDriven, producing uplifting video and audio content that inspires positivity.
Jonathan was born in Sacramento, CA, and raised in Casa Grande, AZ. He graduated with a bachelor of arts in public policy, an economics minor, and a certificate in markets and management. As an undergraduate, he was a Chapel Scholar, holding leadership positions in community organizations, affinity groups, and Duke athletics. This year, he is ecstatic to be working with StepUp Durham, an organization geared toward improving Durham residents access to employment and personal development training. Jonathan looks forward to furthering his involvement in the Durham community, deepening his faith, and discerning God's calling for him.
Sara Yuen is the daughter of a US Naval officer—she grew up on the East Coast, West Coast, Hawaii, Japan, and graduated high school out of San Diego. She graduated from Trinity with the Duke Class of 2018 with a double major in linguistics and dance and a minor in Chinese. This year, she will serve her work placement at Senior PharmAssist—promoting senior well-care by helping seniors across the income spectrum afford and manage their medications and know their healthcare rights. She is grateful to walk with the rest of the Duke Chapel PathWays Fellows leaning into God's calling to be hands in His Kingdom on Earth.
