About

Hello! My name is Jasmine Rivers (she/her/hers), I’m a sophomore, and I’m thrilled to serve as an Lewis Center Student Advisor this year. I’m from San Francisco and am really excited to return to Princeton this fall after taking a gap year from 2020-2021. I’m an intended Anthropology major pursuing certificates in Dance, Neuroscience, Asian American Studies, and Gender and Sexuality Studies (but we’ll see how that works out!). I also serve as a Writing Fellow and the Vice President of BodyHype Dance Company. In my free time I love cooking, going on picnics with friends, and — of course — dancing! The LCA has become my artistic refuge within the broader University, and I can’t wait to welcome you into this community.

As a multiracial, hapa, Filipina-American woman, I’ve always been passionate about advocating for authentic equity, inclusion, and accountability — especially within the arts world. Through my experience serving as an Anti-Racist Teach-In Leader last year, I have a strong understanding of the LCA’s support systems for BIPOC-identifying or underrepresented students, as well as the enduring potential for future improvement. I’d love to continue being a voice for student perspectives and demands for reform, so please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or concerns. And if you have any dance-related questions about the transition to Princeton or navigating the many opportunities the LCA provides, I’m here to help! I look forward to meeting you soon.
