#TellUsTigers: “As the Class of 2020 President, I envisioned a much different end to our time at Princeton. I imagined final moments and heartfelt goodbyes with friends before we entered the next stage of our lives; instead, we had a very rushed and abrupt end to our time here. For me, Princeton didn’t go as planned, but it worked out in the end. For most of my life, I struggled with crippling thoughts of self-doubt, loneliness and depression. Every decision I made was extremely difficult, even if it was minor. If things didn’t go well, I’d be crushed by the feeling of letting everyone down. These anxieties played into my experiences as a student leader. How could I find the motivation to do things when I struggled with getting out of bed? How could I make decisions for everyone when I could barely make decisions for myself? These were daily challenges I faced, but Princeton gave me things and people I could depend on — friends to laugh at jokes with till 3 in the morning, roommates to bicker with and who became my family away from home. It also gave me an outlet for my anxieties. I learned ceramics my first year and continued making pottery in the Wilson College ceramics studio throughout my time here. When I felt drowned by my own thoughts, throwing a pot on the wheel always helped me center myself and think. It wasn’t competitive; it didn’t affect my future; it was something I did solely for myself without the judgment of others. Ceramics gave me much-needed time to reflect and remember why I was doing what I did. Even when things got tough, remembering the why helped me through it. I got involved with student government because I wanted to give back and help my class. I took my role seriously because I genuinely cared & wanted everyone to feel like they belonged. I didn’t want others to feel the way I did. Working in class government, serving on the Alcohol Initiative 和 being a residential college adviser were ways for me to do that. I’m disappointed how things ended, but I’m looking forward to the future — this is just the beginning for the Great Class 的 2020“。 — Juston Forte ’20 (@j40money); 📷: David Kelly Crow #Princetagram #Princeton20

#TellUsTigers: “Arriving at Princeton in fall of my first year, I thought of one thing most: dance. Even with all the other oohs and ahhs of my new-campus life — lively orientations, compelling classes, new friends — I cared most about how I would continue my passion for ballet and contemporary dance. When I auditioned for diSiac, I was inspired by the company’s unmatched talent (I am still blown away every rehearsal). What I did not expect was to be equally blessed with the best family on campus! Not only is diSiac a student-run community of incredibly devoted artists, they fill my time at #PrincetonU with endless comfort, laughs and craziness, in and out of rehearsal. There is something so special about the way diSiac embraces its members not only as dancers, but as people. Because of it, I have grown so much. There is an indescribable connection that exists between all diSiac dancers, what we love to call ‘diSi-magic.’ We have a saying to remind us of this feeling, ‘You think you know, but you have no idea.’ I truly didn’t know I’d ever be in Paris dancing with @LiamALynch ’21 (left) & @FabiolaCorral4 ’21 (right)! In June, we parted ways for internships. Through @princetonoip’s International Internship Program, I’m working at the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance in Stockholm, Sweden (and taking ballet at @balettakademiensthlm). As a Princeton Streicker Fellow, Fabiola is conducting neuroscience research at ESPCI’s Brain Plasticity Lab in Paris. Liam is a risk engineering intern at R+V Versicherung in Germany, where he is also training at @urban.dance.camp! But 的 course diSiac brought us together. When Liam & I visited Fabiola for Bastille Day, diSi-magic was on full blast! Even after walking almost 25k steps around Paris, we were still pumped to film a concept video, now live on @disiacdance. For me, this trip & this photo are an extraordinary reminder that diSiac is larger than Princeton’s campus. I am grateful to say it is wherever life takes us, 和, above all, forever. So, even if I think I know, I still have no idea where it will take me next“。 — Dana Iverson ’21; photo by @Cristina.Hain ’21 #Princetagram #PrincetonAbroad

#TellUsTigers: “To be a scientist, even a scientist at Princeton, is to be a professional fail-er. Each step of the research process offers innumerable ways to fail, and I probably have experienced them all. Hypothesis is simply wrong? Yup. There is a fatal flaw in your study design? Yes. That was the story of my senior thesis, and my master’s thesis. Submit the write-up of what you think is a beautiful, groundbreaking set of studies for publication, and the manuscript gets rejected? That happened to me just last month. I keep at it because I love what I do. Trying to wrestle a big idea into a feasible, persuasive set of studies is fun. Looking at new data still gives me the same feeling as the big drop on a roller coaster. And intellectually tousling with an open-minded critic is like a rousing game of tennis, except that my abjectly poor hand-eye coordination isn’t a hindrance. Additionally, the thrill of success and deep disappointment of failure both eventually fade, but the lessons from trying accumulate. I feel myself become more intellectually nimble when pondering over backwards data leads to new understanding. The act of writing with my students both helps me clarify my thoughts, and teach those things that one can only learn by doing. And every new research effort helps me hone the line between listening to negative feedback and persevering because my gut tells me there is something there. As head of @MatheyCollege, I am especially proud of our #EmbracetheFail campaign, designed to normalize the experience of failure. The central thing I hope you take away from my words is the value of embracing the try. Find joy in what you do, do your best and keep learning. This has given me the fortitude to keep going, even when the road gets bumpy“。 — Stacey Sinclair, professor of psychology and public affairs; 📷 Pellumb Reshidi, Mathey RGS. During February, Mathey College asked people in our community whom our students trust 和 admire to share brief narratives 的 a goal unfulfilled, defeat, loss or rejection that left them disappointed or deterred.

#TellUsTigers: “My first year at Princeton was a revelation. Music & drumming are so important to me, and when I play, I find that I am able to express what I cannot through words — it is both a powerful and empowering part of my life. After a gap year performing with the @BrubeckInst Jazz Quintet around the country and in Paraguay — I naturally expected to be playing much less when I arrived on campus. As a musician passionate about performance, I was never so happy to be wrong! Getting to play with and learn from some of my biggest musical heroes during my first year at #PrincetonU was absolutely unreal. In just my first semester, I found myself performing in Richardson Auditorium with Blue Note trumpet star Ambrose Akinmusire. And spring semester, at the inaugural 普林斯顿大学 Jazz Festival's headlining concert with bass legend #DaveHolland, followed by a big band concert — led by the amazing @DarcyJamesArgue, director of Princeton’s Creative Large Ensemble — where I traded solos onstage with one of my drum idols, @TerriLyneCarrington. Rudresh Mahanthappa (@rudreshkm), world-renowned saxophonist and director of the Program in Jazz Studies, was instrumental in making all of this happen — learning from him has been incredible. Very importantly, I’ve made deep connections and friendships with extremely talented musician-students here, forming the jazz group Voyage, and I’m part of an indie/rock b和 with Julien Chang ’22 (@JulienChangMusic) — last year we opened for @BeachFossilsnyc at Lawn Parties. This year I’m looking forward to playing with Rudresh on Oct. 12 in Richardson as part of his Tiger Quartet & to performing with Julien at his album release show 10/15 @babysallright in Brooklyn followed by a European tour during fall break! Balancing schoolwork, practicing & performing is a challenge, forcing me to be very disciplined. I try to get in 1-3 hours of practice daily; while it isn't easy, every day I realize how fortunate I am to be able to get this world-class education — which strongly informs my playing & overall musicianship — while pursuing my dreams as a pr的essional drummer“。 — @MayaStepansky ’22; video by David Kelly Crow #princetagram

#TellUsTigers: “I met Rudy in fall of my sophomore year at Whitman dining hall. Whether you call it divine providence, luck or serendipity, all I know is that I could not be more thankful that I happened to be wearing my FC Barcelona shirt that day, because it led to a conversation and ensuing friendship that is one of the most impactful parts of my Princeton experience. This friendship grew over the subsequent days and weeks, as Rudy, upon learning of my food sensitivities, kindly cooked gluten- & dairy-free dishes for me. He even gave me a hand-woven bookmark from his native Guatemala and cooked me up some Guatemalan dishes as he told me stories about his life there. One night, however, I was feeling exhausted from the demands of pre-med coursework. Rudy instantly sensed that and asked if I was okay; I told him that as much as I wanted to be a doctor, the constant grind was beginning to take its toll. Then, Rudy shared a story that I will never forget: Growing up in Guatemala, his one dream was to become a doctor. His father lived in the U.S., and there was only enough money for one of his children to join him; Rudy’s sister got to go. The plan was for her to work so that she could help pay for Rudy’s medical school in Guatemala. However, her experience did not go as planned and she returned home. At that time, Rudy’s girlfriend had a child, and the new life to take care of, combined with a lack of financial means, meant Rudy could not attend med school. He then told me that being a doctor will be incredibly hard. He said that there will be days like this, days when you’re tired & you simply don’t feel like you can keep going. But he also said that he knew just as well as I did that this was what I was meant to do & if I had the opportunity to live my dream, I could not let that go. He told me that he was living his dream vicariously through me. Overwhelmed with a sense of gratitude for Rudy’s friendship, I was imbued with a sense 的 perspective about my career journey 和 place in the world. I’m proud to call Rudy a friend for life. — Michael Lotito ’20 (@mlotito15); 📷 Hope vanCleaf @creativefingerprint #Princetagram @Princeton_Dining #WorkingAtPrinceton

#TellUsTigers: “I thought that going to Princeton would help me grow, but my first two years, I found myself more lost and confused than ever. I decided to take a year off to find myself, and through meeting a few loving and compassionate people, I somehow did get a better sense of who I am! One thing I realized was how much resentment I had towards being and being seen as a Chinese American woman. When I returned to #PrincetonU, I wanted to try something new, so I enrolled in my first acting class (with @Nehassaiu deGannes, lecturer in theater) and gained a deep appreciation for the work. Learning how to embody others gave me the tools to become more aware of my own patterns and work through them. After that class, I decided to pursue a theater certificate. (I also founded @childsplayimprov my senior year because I believe in the magic of comedy and laughter & I wished for more opportunities for that on campus!) For my senior thesis, I performed a solo show based on my experiences interviewing Asian Americans in San Francisco and traveling to my mother’s hometown, Wuhan, China, to visit my extended family, learn more about my heritage and find more love for that part of myself. (Two years later & how much has that city changed to the world?) In summer 2018, when I started trying to find strangers to interview, my first idea was to make a cardboard sign and wait. After a couple hours, I got no interviews, some strange looks and one person who thought I needed help. When I pushed myself to approach people though, I was surprised by how much they shared. I heard the stories of an older Korean man who owns 400 language dictionaries and was planning a trip home (he hadn’t been since his son’s wedding 20 years ago), 和 many others. It’s surreal to reflect on those experiences now, during #COVID19, since I’m trying so hard to avoid everyone! That summer, I could become a part 的 a total stranger’s life by just asking. I don’t want to ever forget that feeling because I know that everything in the world — other people, events — is a foil to your own experience“。 — Julia Yu ’19 (@goodjuyu); 📷 by Felicity Audet ’21 (@felicitousphotography) #Princetagram @PrincetonArts
