Hello everyone! I’m Roya, and I’m an undergraduate at Princeton University in the English department. I tutored in the Writing Department at my high school and love connecting with students and helping them reach their fullest potential based on the goals we set together. Outside of academics, I love to play guitar and sing, write poetry, swim, run, and bike! My goal is to pursue something in the field of academics — perhaps teaching or writing, to continue connecting with others in the pursuit of learning.
