WHAT COLLEGES SEEK

  • Students who they could see contributing to their campus culture, academia, etc

AREAS OF EXPERTISE IN COLLEGE

I have very broad and interdisiplinary academic interests overall and have taken classes from may different departments while at Princeton. Currently, in academics, my interest and passion lie in the intersection of psychology/ behavioral science and public policy, and I am specifically interested in how this could affect policies concerning the environment and sustainable behaviours, and more pro-social behaviours in general.

In the future, I know I want to be of meaningful service to the world but have yet to figure out through what medium I can have the most impact.
