Hello Princeton people and welcome to best college on campus! My name is Rachelle Jacques; I am originally from Connecticut, but my family currently lives in Georgia. At Princeton, my concentration is in African American Studies, with a focus on Race and Public Policy. My two favorite things to do are travel and spend time with family. Fortunately, I am able to travel to my favorite destination (Haiti) and spend time with relatives simultaneously. I am of Haitian descent and many of my family members still live in Haiti. In my free time, I enjoy dancing ballet, finding new music and reading a fascinating book (usually about Haiti). I look forward to getting to know all of you and teaching you all the best tricks to navigate Princeton!
