"The truth is, none of us have really figured it out. Some of us have had more time to reflect on these issues than others, but we all deal with the same pressure of appearing a certain way and assuming that people see us a certain way and feeling like we don't live up to those expectations."

The Princeton Perspective Project (PPP) aims to empower Princeton students to: alleviate the burden of unrealistic expectations; constructively navigate setbacks, disappointment, doubt, and loneliness; build resilience and develop adaptive coping responses to stress; and mitigate anxieties inherent in the Princeton student experience.
"I wish I could say I’ve completely overcome my self-doubts. I still wrestle with these invasive thoughts that “I’m not smart enough”— thoughts that I recognize are useless, but sometimes your mind gets stuck on things that don’t matter. Nevertheless, engaging in research has helped me develop a realistic sense of my abilities and limitations. And having found that niche, I’ve come to think that perhaps President Tilghman was right: maybe I do belong at Princeton, after all."
