I’m Kathy, a junior (in the fall) at Harvard College, where I’m studying Government and hoping to get a secondary in Global Health and Health Policy with a citation in Spanish. Although I grew up in New York, I was born in Utah, so I’ve always held a not-so-secret impartiality towards my home state!
In college, I’m just trying to find a direction to move towards—everything seems so wonderfully exciting and new and I just wish I had time to take every class, whether it is science, math, history, philosophy, literature, economics… I’m currently pursuing a couple internships (mostly focused around public interest, health law or policy, human rights…) and research jobs for next semester, which should be exciting (and busy) enough! My varied interests are reflected in the wide array of classes I’ve taken and the extracurriculars I’m involved in (FIMRC, Harvard Square Homeless Shelter, the Crimson school newspaper, Small Claims Advisory Service…). To stay active at college, I’m involved in Harvard Taekwondo team, badminton, and the Asian American Dance Troupe.
In the end, I just love learning and meeting new people, hearing about and living vicariously through their experiences, while hoping to soon have a few adventures of my own!
