Concentration: History
Certificates: African Studies, Latin American Studies, South Asian Studies

Hello, Moose! My name is Bhadrajee, though everyone calls me BJ, and I'm super excited to serve as one of Mathey's Peer Academic Advisers for this upcoming year! I'm a Pre-Law History concentrator, and I'm also pursuing certificates in African Studies, Latin American Studies and  South Asian Studies. I was born in Scotland to Sri Lankan parents, but I've spent the majority of my life living in Ballinteer, Ireland in the southern suburbs of Dublin. On campus, I also serve as the Davis International Center's Leader Coordinator helping to plan and organize Undergraduate and Graduate International Orientation, as the Secretary for the Pre-Law society, as an Ecological Representative for the Office of Sustainability, as an
Editor of the Princeton Historical Review, and as a Peer Tutor for Latin and Sanskrit. Feel free to reach out to me about general academic advice, language study, or summer study abroad! I can't wait to meet you all!

Favorite Courses:
REL 225 (The Buddhist World of Thought and Practice): A great course for anyone with any kind of an interest in Buddhist history, philosophy or practice. Professor Stone really makes accessible the study of a philosophy which continues to guide the lives of hundreds of millions of people across the world today.

Fun fact: I only learned how to tie my shoelaces when I was sixteen years old :(
