My name is Audrey. At Princeton University, I study economics and a variety of subjects in humanities. I am on the Model UN team and the Club Cycling team. While I have only done Model UN since I’ve been here at Princeton, I’ve been cycling for years. I competed on the varsity team at Phillips Exeter Academy, and over the summer I biked my first century (100 miles in one ride)! I love going on bike tours with my father during vacations and I’m excited to compete with the Princeton team this spring.
In high school, I was also very involved in musical theater. I took singing lessons for 7 years, played roles like “Annie” from Annie and “Jack” from Into the Woods, and even began writing my own music in high school. During my senior year, I created an elective course in which I wrote five songs and performed them live at the end of the semester. In college, I am currently branching out and trying new activities, but I trust that I will soon find my way back to musical theater.
During my senior year of high school, I studied abroad in England for a semester. My peers and I lived on a farm outside of Stratford, reading Bloomsbury novels, Shakespeare plays, and anything else we could get our hands on. We saw shows at the Royal Shakespeare Company, the Globe, and other famous theaters in England. When we weren’t reading or experiencing amazing professional theater, we were exploring all areas of the country. We hiked in the Lake District, lived with host families in Hereford, and ate pastries with tea in Bathe. England helped me gain a profound understanding of literature and theater. I hope to go back soon!
When I come home from school, I enjoy tutoring my younger brother in math. I’ve realized that I enjoy imparting my knowledge and making it easier for others to understand complicated material. Working with Princeton Tutoring is a great opportunity for me to pursue this passion. I’m excited to work with more students and learn from them as much as they learn from me.
