Hi, my name is Yuanyuan, and I’m a senior in the VIS program. I’m from the Bronx. I love photography, and I enjoy taking portraits.

I switched from AB COS to VIS in my junior year. It was one of the toughest decisions to make but also one of the most liberating decisions. I would not have been able to make the switch had it not been the support and encouragement that I received from my friend and mentors. And so, if you find yourself struggling in a similar situation, don’t hesitate to reach out and chat with us! I also love to talk about art and life — it’s one of the ways that I get inspirations for art.

Many people would claim Art to be their dream major, but not many of them end up pursuing it, especially at Princeton. Just remember that no matter which path you’ve walked, the life you are living right now is the life you would have wondered about had you chosen another path instead. Give yourself a chance, and I’m excited to meet you!
