Hamdi Hakimi

I’m a rising sophomore at Harvard College pursuing a Bachelor’s in Economics and a concurrent Master’s with the Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations department specialising in Philosophy. My studies has been transformational as I was able to take classes outside of my major and often times with Master’s and PhDs students who had and still are teaching me immensely.


Celeste Chung

Hi! My name is Celeste and I’m an incoming freshman at Stanford where I plan to continue my interest in Political Science and Feminist Studies. Excited to be a one of the 2022 Core members!

Alif Razin

Hi, I’m Razin! I’m a rising junior majoring in Chemical Engineering at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). If I were to choose one thing that I appreciate the most about the US education system, it would be the freedom and flexibility that is given to students to craft their own education plan. Aside from my main field of study, I was given the opportunity to enrol in classes that piqued my interest, such as the study of religion and renewable energy policy.

Je Qin
