Hello and welcome to Rocky! I'm a senior from Pequannock, New Jersey. Or at least that's what I tell people when there's not enough time to share my whole life story. I moved around quite a bit growing up, spending time in California, North Carolina and Texas, too. In light of all that moving, I'm very happy to say I've found a home at Princeton. On campus, I'm involved in Princeton Against Sex Trafficking, Community House, the International Relations Council and Princeton Faith and Action. I also did cheerleading for a year and play intramural volleyball from time to time. I'm super fortunate to have found an academic path that I'm passionate about, so I would love to share my insights about how to find your place here academically, as well as extracurricularly. Off campus, too, I've been able to take advantage of some of the many opportunities Princeton offers by going abroad, which have been formative aspects of my undergrad experience and would highly recommend to any of you who might be interested. Please don't hesitate to come to me with any questions or concerns, or to just chat about life!
