While all Peer Listeners remain anonymous throughout their time working with Nightline, 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), Linda Nie (’21), Naser Al-Fawakhiri (’22), Esther Levy (’22), Fatinah Albeez (’23), Luke Bunday (’23), and Katherine Cho (’23).
A little bit about each of us:
Grace Brightbill ’21 is a SPIA 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.
Luke Bunday ’23 is a Molecular Biology major from Minnetonka, Minnesota, pursuing a certificate in East Asian Studies. Outside of PPN, he is a member of the Princeton US-China Coalition and the Asian American Student Association. Luke volunteers with PPN because he believes that all students deserve a space where they can talk through their concerns without fear of judgement.
