Daniel Hu ’24, Cultural Advocate

Prospective COS Major

Hi! My name is Daniel, I’m from Queens, New York, and I’m leaning toward majoring in COS. I’m one of AASA’s cultural advocates this semester, so I’m responsible for organizing events and initiatives that can spread broader awareness about APIDA culture and arts. One of the reasons I’m a cultural advocate is because I’m passionate about Asian American art and literature: I haven’t had much experience with artwork that Asian Americans have created beyond some plays, but I have had the chance to read different authors’ takes on the Asian American experience and wanted to give them a broader audience at Princeton.   Outside AASA, I’m also a part of ReHack, PUNC, and Matriculate. Feel free to contact me at dh37@princeton.edu!
