While all Nightline Peer Listeners remain anonymous throughout their time working on the phone lines, we have three 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), Esther Levy (’22), and Linda Nie (’21).
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.
Esther Levy, ’22 is a Religion major from Brooklyn, N.Y. On campus, she copy edits for the Daily Princetonian, volunteers for CONTACT of Mercer County, and is on the Center for Jewish Life student board. Esther volunteers with PPN because she believes all students should know they are not alone and deserve to feel supported and safe, both on and off campus.
Linda Nie, ’21 is a Molecular Biology major from Staten Island, New York. On campus, Linda plays in the Princeton University Wind Ensemble and is a volunteer for Community House After School Academy. Linda volunteers with PPN because the organization serves as an important resource for the Princeton community and she wants all students to feel heard and supported.
