 “Princeton is a space of abundance. I am grateful for the privileges that I have as a student here, and it's a little overwhelming sometimes. I think all marginalized students on campus should feel empowered to stake claims to the resources available. I find that some students feel guilty about doing so, but I want to encourage you by telling you that these resources are here for YOU! Use them shamelessly.”
