Benjamin Nuland (Jamin) is a sophomore at Princeton High School. He was born and raised in Shanghai China where he lived until he was 13. During his time at Shanghai YKPao School, Shanghai American School, and Song Qing Ling Kindergarten he joined multiple school plays including the Reluctant Dragon, Daisy Pulls it off and Alice in Wonderland. He also performed in many school ensembles and choirs. After leaving China, Jamin and his family took a year off to travel the world, using that time as an educational opportunity to learn from a diversity of cultures and prepare for a new life in the US. Jamin arrived in Princeton and entered Princeton High School as a freshman 1.5 years ago. He loves soccer and plays for school and club teams. He’s a fan of history and science but he loves drama the most, he loves socializing and learning new acting skills from his teachers and his peers. With their support, Jamin slowly gained confidence to participate in this year’s STANJ competition. He would like to thank his drama teachers Ms. Krawiecki, Mr Holland, Ms. Sid, and Ms. Maureen for guiding him, teaching him, and supporting him. He would also like to thank his classmates in Drama I & II and the drama kids at Shanghai American School and YKPao. Finally, Jamin would like to thank his family and friends for being with him every step of the way and cheering for him from the wings.
