Dimitris Ntaras '21
Dimitris, originally from Athens, Greece, is a somphomare planning to major in Molecular Biology and attain certificates in Entrepreneurship and Global Health. He aspires to work in Public Health and actively participate in the effort of raising the world’s living standards. A deeply practical person, Dimitris wishes to combine scientific knowledge with an awareness of social issues to make targeted interventions in key health challenges. He has background in social entrepreneurship, having responded to the issue of Alzheimer’s patients going missing in Greece with a tech venture that was commended upon in a student startup competition. With AquaCerta, he wishes to enlarge his impact and take control of an issue that has inefficiently been handled – the global water crisis. When not working in developing the venture or brainstorming other causes in need of “a better solution”, he is normally found hanging in the Digital Learning Lab, working with IgniteSTEM to promote hackathons in secondary schools, organizing the next initiative for Princeton Innovation, or taking care of Princeton Model Congress tasks. He is also actively promoting educational causes, by mentoring for Matriculate and volunteering with the Petey Greene program.
