When I first came to Princeton from London, I had no clue what I'd end up majoring in. During my first semester here, I decided, on a whim, to take second-year Chinese. At the time, it seemed like an insignificant decision. But after I spent my first summer in China, under the Princeton in Beijing program, I knew that I wanted to continue my study of Chinese language and culture as my major. The East Asian Studies department appealed to me because it includes such a large scope of subject matter, within many different academic disciplines. I am focusing on Chinese language and linguistics -- in addition to my major, I look forward to pursuing a certificate in Translation and Intercultural Communication. This past summer, I worked as an intern in Shanghai.
Around campus, I am involved in Advertise This, Service in Style, PACT, Princyclopedia, and tutoring at the public library.
I know what it's like to feel overwhelmed when choosing - or attempting to choose - classes and majors. I am very happy to help out with any questions or concerns you have, and look forward to hearing from you!
