Hi! My name is Allison, and I’m a junior from Bethesda, Maryland, just outside of Washington, DC. I’m studying Anthropology with certificates in Global Health and African-American Studies. When I’m not in class, I’m also an Orange Key Tour Guide, a Project Coordinator and volunteer with the Students’ Volunteers Council, an intern with the Center for Jewish Life (Hillel), and a bartender for the Formal Services Agency. I spent a long time choosing my major and seriously considered ANT, POL, SOC, and SPO, at a minimum, so I’d be happy to help anybody struggling to figure out their academic plan. I also have loved my experiences abroad, and can answer questions about that. Welcome to Forbes, and welcome to Princeton!
Best time to reach me: I constantly check my email, so that’s a great way to find me. I’m also happy to meet in person. Ask me any questions!
