Princeton class that has shaped the way I think:  HIS380 was an amazing course that taught me how to read history as a narrative. Tracing people throughout historical events and as real people rather than distant characters really helped me absorb the information. Furthermore, those who write history really have the power to shape it so it is important that we be cognizant of this as consumers of knowledge.

Favorite memory from first year at Princeton:  Traveling into NYC with my Freshman Seminar to visit finance firms and enjoy a wonderful dinner!
