Princeton School of Public and International Affairs, Class of 2022

I’m a Princeton School of Public and International Affairs major with certificates in Humanistic Studies and Dance.

Role(s) held in the Humanistic Studies Program:

Certificate Student, Humanities Mentor

Activities on campus:

BodyHype Dance Company (President), Princeton Dance Festival, Princeton University Ballet, James Madison Program (Undergraduate Fellow), Community House Tutoring (Tutor)

Why I decided to study the humanities:

I am curious about the meaning of our existence beyond survival.

What I have gained from the humanities:

I have gained community, meaning, and energy. I see the world differently for having learned more about its inner workings and evolution.

HUM Sequence fall break trip:

I attended a fall break trip in Greece studying the metopes of the Parthenon and their relationship to the EU and Greek political and social identity. I emerged from the trip a more intellectual, connected, passionate person. My friendships were deepened alongside my understanding of Greece, literature, art, and the value of culture more broadly.
