How has your international experience benefitted you personally or academically?
This internship has refreshed me. Princeton is hard and I was almost excited to be a 23 hour plane ride from the University. Being able to immerse myself in a new world has given me lessons and knowledge that sitting in a Princeton classroom never could have. I feel more in tune with people of a different culture, maneuvering around a language gap, extreme poverty, and the idea that knowledge is evenly distributed but opportunity is not.
