“I believe that as the governing board of an incredibly diverse and global institution, the Board of Overseers would better serve the University by including insights from recent graduates and international alumni. Harvard was transformative for me both professionally and personally. It would be an honor to give back to our community by bringing fresh ideas to the table and continuing to make Harvard more inclusive.”
