Shaina Watrous '14
Hi Butler! My name is Shaina, and I grew up in West Windsor, five minutes away from campus. I’m a senior in the Woodrow Wilson School pursuing a certificate in South Asian Studies. Before my freshman year, I was part of the Bridge Year Program, which allowed me to spend a transformative year living and working in India! On campus, I lead Outdoor Action trips, tutor inmates in NJ prisons to help them get their GEDs, and co-founded an organization called Students for Prison Education and Reform. In addition to the amazing classes I’ve taken here, I love that Princeton has allowed me to take my education outside of the Orange Bubble: I participated in an alternative fall break trip to learn about female incarceration in Oklahoma, traveled to Spain on a Muslim-Jewish Dialogue trip, and I also just returned from spending my spring semester in Cape Town studying South African education and unemployment. Please email me if you have any questions at all - I’d love to get to know you, and help you get the most out of your time here!
