Hey! I’m Sandy, a concentrator in the Class of 2021 from Washington, DC. When I first came to Harvard, I wasn’t sure what I was going to study, but I’ve always been interested in History because I see it as explaining how our world has come to exist as it is today. My primary historical interests lie in political history and leadership, especially how political leaders have been able to exceed their contemporaries’ expectations and find success in challenging situations. Pretty much anything historical is interesting, though! Outside of History, I have a citation in Chinese, I’m the chair of the Harvard Political Union, Communications Director for the Students for the Exploration and Development of Space, and part of Winthrop HoCo. If you’ve got any questions about the concentration, classes, house life, or just have a fun conversation, just send me an email!
