Why I decided to study the humanities:

I started studying the humanities by taking the HUM Sequence at Princeton. My initial aim was to gain exposure to a lot of different subjects through different texts. I ended up really enjoying the politics-related works we studied and that is how I found my concentration!

What I have gained from the humanities:

The humanities have given me a broader academic perspective.

Independent work:

My senior thesis looks into Pakistan’s 2018 national election.
