Elm Grove, WI

2022

Part

Alto

Margot Armbruster is a sophomore from Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Den Haag, the Netherlands who is grateful for the dairy knowledge both her cheese-producing homelands have transmitted to her. Her hobbies include being a cheese snob (ask her about the proper pronunciation of "Gouda"), badly baking bread, learning dead languages, and getting sunburned in the Duke Gardens. When Margot's not getting roped into late-night movie marathons or whipping up heavily improvised cookie recipes for SBSB, she's involved with the Duke International Relations Association, the Duke Classics Collegium, and the Kenan Institute for Ethics, and she offers tepid takes in the Duke Chronicle's opinion section. Check back in March to see if she's managed to declare a major! (It's probably English.) She hopes, above all, to one day be worthy of her dog's love.

"There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love." (1 John 4:18 New International Version (NIV))

 

Stacy Chen is a sophomore who lived her life pretty much as a nomad. As a fun-sized Pilates and musical theatre fanatic, she moved houses a total of 9 times in her life. After her trans-Pacific move from China, she landed in Rome for the warmer weather and faced another new culture stocked with “sweet tay’s” and “y’all’s.” She spent her high school years in Rome. Rome, Georgia. As a grade-schooler with a naturally darker complexion in contrast to Chinese beauty standards, nothing outshined the appeal of moving to a country where spray tans are routine. She faces many internal disaccord on top of her identity crisis as a lass with hyphenated cultures: She loves dogs but is allergic. She loves smiling but hates wrinkles. She loves food but can’t cook. For Stacy, there is nothing better than singing in an a cappella music ministry on campus, and she can’t wait for God to mature her in her faith through SBSB, a wonderfully-knit community filled with lunatics, mentors, and friends.

Eka Ebong is a sophomore from Harrisburg, North Carolina. She’s always had a thing for music every since she was 3, when she wrote her first song. Since then she has gone on to sing in choir and perform in musicals and plays. When she’s not singing, you could probably find her reading, playing piano, or dancing . She thoroughly enjoys talking about Ed Sheeran, any musical on Broadway, the benefits of nugget ice, the scent of tires and the superiority of Gain over other laundry detergents. Her special powers include stopping the microwave before it starts beeping and completing diy projects. Eka plans to study Electrical Engineering. She’s very excited to be a member of SBSB and continue doing what she loves while glorifying God.

She is double majoring in biology and global health with a minor in computational biology, and hopes to end up saving the world or something someday.

Bass

“If the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed” (John 8:36).​

 

Andrew is a junior from Olanta, South Carolina with a stupefying penchant for the awkward. His main pastime is eating food – particularly of the Southern variety and more than likely (vinegar-based) barbeque. Besides SBSB, his musical endeavors include the organ, piano, and viola. As an Eagle Scout, he has participated in all kinds of unnecessary physical exertion such as hiking, portaging, and mountain climbing in places like Algonquin, New Mexico, and the Sierras. A mediocre oil painter, some of his paintings have been in galleries along with those of his similarly artistic mother and grandfather. He has a keen interest in Anglican and Patristic theology. As an aspiring narcoleptic, you can find Andrew sleeping contentedly almost anywhere: Calculus class, West Union, or Duke Chapel.

Mezzo-Soprano

Grace is a freshman from Northern Virginia (but she loves the rest of Virginia as well!!) Before joining SBSB, she had only ever sung in the car, in the shower, and in her room behind closed doors. But she is excited to be a part of SBSB to continue improving her singing while having fun and growing in her faith. She intends on pursuing a math major at Duke. When not annoying her roommate by rehearsing her parts, Grace can be found studying in WU, running, editing video for the Chronicle, or petting the dogs on campus.
