“As an alumna who has recently become more involved with the University, I recognize the value of engaging with this diverse community of talented people from all over the world invested in making Harvard the best it can be. As an African American woman, I believe I can be particularly useful in helping the HAA connect with both women and underrepresented minorities. I have already begun that work on the HAA Board and would be eternally grateful for the opportunity to continue these efforts as an elected director.”
