While all Nightline Peer Listeners remain anonymous throughout their time working on the phone lines, we have four directors who serve as the public figures of our organization, coordinating Nightline’s recruitment of new listeners, publicizing our services, and integrating our work into the Princeton community. Our current directors are Grace Brightbill (’21), DaeHee Lee (’20), Michelle Min (’21), and Mitashee Das (’20).
A little bit about each of us:
Grace Brightbill ’21 is a WWS major from Alexandria, VA, pursuing a certificate in Near Eastern Studies. On campus, Grace is on the varsity field hockey team, a Student-Athlete Wellness Leader, and a CONTACT volunteer. Grace volunteers with PPN to give back to Princeton and serve the community, and she became a PPN leader because she wants to spread awareness of PPN on campus and to grow the program as much as possible.
DaeHee Lee ’20 is a Molecular Biology major from Palisades Park, NJ pursuing a certificate in Neuroscience. On campus, DaeHee is a volunteer in the ER Department for the University Princeton Medical Center, a senior columnist for the Daily Princetonian, a volunteer for CONTACT, a suicide hotline, and a member of the Red Cross serving Northern Jersey. DaeHee became a PPN co-director because he thinks it is a great way to serve the student body here at Princeton, and is excited to facilitate these communications on campus!
Michelle Min, ’20 is a Linguistics major from Southern California pursuing a certificate in Cognitive Science. On campus, she is also a board member of the Princeton Projective Project, a learning strategies consultant at the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning, and an officer for Princeton’s American Sign Language club. Michelle became a PPN leader because she believes that it fulfills an important need, on a campus where people can feel inadequate, alone, and unheard. She wants to focus building the community of volunteers around this shared purpose in order to provide the best service for other students!
Mitashee Das ’20 is a Neuroscience major from New York City pursuing a certificate in Global Health and Health Policy. On campus, Mitashee directs Princeton Model Congress and events for Princeton Neuroscience Network. She volunteers with Ascend Hospice and CONTACT, a suicide prevention hotline, and counsels high school students in test prep subjects and college admissions. Mitashee became a Princeton Peer Nightline co-director because she wants to help normalize conversations around mental health to create a less isolating and more comfortable community at Princeton.
