Molecular Biology

Hey everyone! My name is Waasae and I'm a senior from Reading, Pennsylvania. I am a pre-med student concentrating in Molecular Biology. On campus I am a Peer Health Advisor, orientation leader (OA and CA), and part of the MSA (Muslim Student Association). In my free time I like to play basketball and hang out with friends. Transitioning to college can be tough for numerous reasons, but I'm here to help with any academic adjustments or advice you may need. Feel free to reach out with any questions!

What's a favorite memory from your first year at Princeton?
Meeting all the new people that I would be spending the next 4 years with.

What's a Princeton class that has shaped the way you think and why?
PHI 202: Introduction to Moral Philosophy. This was the first philosophy class I had ever taken and it helped me view situations in my life from a different, unique perspective. Learning about various moral belief systems allowed me to apply what I learned when faced with a choice in my daily life. Actually following the moral belief systems is difficult due to their practicality, but it was still cool to have that new perspective.
