Here's a new piece for Princeton Alumni Weekly. It accompanies a story about a private Facebook group for Princeton students, Tiger Confessions. In this group, students can anonymously express thoughts they're uncomfortable expressing in person to others. These confessions can run the spectrum from happy, sad, embarrassing, to just plain humorous. In a recent post, a student discussed committing suicide, which caught the attention of the school administration. They reinforced the idea that, while it is worthy to have forum such as this, there are mental health professionals available, who can help address difficult issues and emotions which students confront.
A special thanks to art director, Marianne Nelson, for this fascinating assignment.
