Miranda Bolef is a sophomore from San Luis Obispo, California, tentatively planning to major in Politics, with certificates in Statistics and African Studies. Over the 2012-2013 academic year, Miranda spent nine months in Senegal through Princeton’s Bridge Year Program, where she taught English at the YMCA of Dakar and studied Senegalese Sufism. The year sparked an interest in development issues, an area she is excited to explore at ISS. Miranda is active in the theater community on campus and recently enjoyed improving her French on an intensive summer language program in southern France. Miranda is thrilled to contribute to ISS’ work and to learn more about reform implementation around the world.
