Biography

Hi, my name is Esther, and I'm from Cambridge, MA. I am a recent graduate who studied Classics, and I love thinking and talking about anything to do with words, language, reading, and writing. I am involved with the Harvard classics journal, the Small Claims Advisory Service, the Abigail Adams Institute, and Harvard Asian Baptist Student Koinonia, a Bible study group on campus. When I'm not studying ancient (not dead!) languages or wandering around one of Harvard's many libraries, I enjoy baking, volunteering at my old elementary school, playing the cello, or exploring the best restaurants in town.

Even though I'm from Cambridge, I spent part of my high school years being homeschooled abroad, so I am particularly passionate about reaching out to international students, homeschooled students, or any students coming from non-traditional academic backgrounds. Please feel free to get in touch with any questions you might have about being in college, being in Cambridge, or being at Harvard!
