“Dat is een beetje de grap hier, dat ik niets van erfgoed af weet. Ondertussen wel natuurlijk, je vangt het een en ander op. Maar ik ga niemand ervan overtuigen dat ik in mijn vrije tijd naar musea ga, of dat soort dingen. Dat levert juist heel leuke discussies op met studenten, bijvoorbeeld als je het hebt over betekenisgeving. Zij zijn natuurlijk de erfgoedprofessionals, zij hebben net iets geleerd en staan daar dan op het schoolplein over te praten. En dan kom ik als leek dat gesprek in met een heel andere kijk op erfgoed. Zij vinden dingen belangrijk die ik niet belangrijk vind. En voor hen is het interessant om te beseffen hoe de rest van de bevolking naar deze dingen kijkt.
Het advies dat ik aan studenten zou geven? Relativeer. Neem jezelf niet ál te serieus. Soms willen ze nog te groot of te moeilijk denken. Keep it simple. Wat ik ook zeg in onze studentenvereniging Depot, als studenten dingen willen organiseren: hou het makkelijk, hou het uitvoerbaar. Ga nou geen berg maken van een heuvel. Ga geen beren op de weg zoeken. De studenten nemen sommige dingen te serieus, en dat zie ik ook terugkomen in bepaalde vakken. Dat ze een vak niet halen, omdat ze te groot hebben gedacht. Houd het simpeler. Relativeer.” ► Dimitri Cruz, roostermaker Reinwardt Academie #humansofthearts

#TellUsTigers: “I met Rudy in fall of my sophomore year at Whitman dining hall. Whether you call it divine providence, luck or serendipity, all I know is that I could not be more thankful that I happened to be wearing my FC Barcelona shirt that day, because it led to a conversation and ensuing friendship that is one of the most impactful parts of my Princeton experience. This friendship grew over the subsequent days and weeks, as Rudy, upon learning of my food sensitivities, kindly cooked gluten- & dairy-free dishes for me. He even gave me a hand-woven bookmark from his native Guatemala and cooked me up some Guatemalan dishes as he told me stories about his life there. One night, however, I was feeling exhausted from the demands of pre-med coursework. Rudy instantly sensed that and asked if I was okay; I told him that as much as I wanted to be a doctor, the constant grind was beginning to take its toll. Then, Rudy shared a story that I will never forget: Growing up in Guatemala, his one dream was to become a doctor. His father lived in the U.S., and there was only enough money for one of his children to join him; Rudy’s sister got to go. The plan was for her to work so that she could help pay for Rudy’s medical school in Guatemala. However, her experience did not go as planned and she returned home. At that time, Rudy’s girlfriend had a child, and the new life to take care of, combined with a lack of financial means, meant Rudy could not attend med school. He then told me that being a doctor will be incredibly hard. He said that there will be days like this, days when you’re tired & you simply don’t feel like you can keep going. But he also said that he knew just as well as I did that this was what I was meant to do & if I had the opportunity to live my dream, I could not let that go. He told me that he was living his dream vicariously through me. Overwhelmed with a sense of gratitude for Rudy’s friendship, I was imbued with a sense of perspective about my career journey and place in the world. I’m proud to call Rudy a friend for life. — Michael Lotito ’20 (@mlotito15); 📷 Hope vanCleaf @creativefingerprint #Princetagram @Princeton_Dining #WorkingAtPrinceton
