Biography

Hello! My name is Hannah, and I am a rising senior at Harvard concentrating in History from southeast Los Angeles County. When I’m not learning the history of different things all around the world, you can find me having the time of my life in Kirkland House, where I live and play board games with my friends. I also play quidditch, a full-contact sport that, yes, is based on Harry Potter, and I write for The Harvard Crimson. In my spare time, I paint watercolors and do calligraphy. As a first-generation college student and daughter of Mexican and Salvadoran immigrants, Harvard seemed so out of reach for me at first, and I’m happy to answer any questions you have about life here.
