Why, hello there! Nice to meet you! My name is Aminah and I’m a first-generation lower-income student from Los Angeles, California. I am the daughter of two Nigerian immigrants and the second oldest of five siblings. I applied to Princeton as a Neuroscience concentrator, but I am now exploring other concentrations including Sociology, Computer Science, and Psychology. I am also interested in getting some certificates, particularly in Creative Writing, Technology and Society, Visual Arts, Applications of Computing, or African American Studies. Extracurricular activity-wise, I am a member of the Muslim Student Association (MSA), the Princeton African Student Association (PASA), and the Scholars Institute Fellows Program (SIFP). I also style outfits for TigerTrends and write poetry with Songline SlamFirst College / New College West is my home!  I enjoy crocheting clothes, going for walks with my friends, watching anime and admiring the greenery on Princeton’s beautiful campus. As a proud Questbridge Match Scholar and Thrive Scholar, I’d be more than happy to answer your questions about student life. Please reach out, I'd love to hear from you!
