PRECEPT: AZZA COHEN '16, MY BRIDGE YEAR IN INDIA - September 2, 2015
Join us as Azza Cohen '16 talks about being part of Princeton's Bridge Year program and shows a special screening of the film she produced to document her experience while in India. Hosted by Bob Murley '72. RSVP by 8/31!
Azza is a senior from Highland Park, Illinois, majoring in history. Before her freshman year, she participated in the University's Bridge Year Program in India, where she volunteered for the organization Guria, which fights human trafficking through legal and educational intervention.
On campus, she is a member of the Princeton Bhangra team, a leader and coordinator of the Pace Center's Breakout Princeton alternative break program, a worker at the Pace Center for Civic Engagement and an opinion writer for the Daily Princetonian. Azza is a 2015 recipient of the Spirit of Princeton award.
Specks of Dust, a documentary by Azza and Shaina Watrous '14, follows the lives of individuals fighting for justice for the survivors of human trafficking in Varanasi, India. The film was inspired by their nine-month experience during their bridge year.
