Bio/Description

Hi there! My name is Elizabeth, and I am a senior from Easton, Massachusetts. 

At Princeton, I am concentrating in Economics and I dabble in African American Studies, Humanistic Studies, and Spanish Language & Culture. Outside of academics, my interests lie in community service, educational policy, and working to address social inequalities and educational disadvantages. In my free time, I enjoy baking, reading, yoga, volunteering, and spending time with family and friends. 

Looking forward to meeting all of my zees!

What's a Princeton class that has shaped the way you think and why?
The Western Humanities Sequence (HUM 216-17 & HUM 218-219) has been integral in sharpening my critical and analytical skills at Princeton. Apart from giving an overview of the Western Canon, this course introduced me different ways of knowing and examining the world. In almost every other course I have taken at Princeton (including my ECO courses), I actively use skills I gained from the course.
