Erika Anderson ’15 – Unforgettable Princeton

Honorable Mention

I graduated in 2015, a major in the English department, a member of Princeton Christian Fellowship, an apprentice in Teacher Prep. Lately, I have been thinking about what brought me joy during that time: building friendships, reading poetry, and seeing the towpath decked in daffodils to name just a few. These memories mean more than I can express; however, the good tends to make us forget the demanding reality for Princeton students. After college, instead of forgetting or pretending about the challenges, I started to reflect on my experience honestly. That freedom allowed me to learn from the difficult, understand the blessings, feel incredibly thankful, and value moments like the one that inspired my “Unforgettable Princeton” story.
