Hey everybody! My name is Harpreet Singh, and I’m a junior from Mississippi living in Lowell House (best House!). I’m pursuing a joint concentration in Computer Science and Government. Outside of class, I serve as the President of Harvard Primus, the first-gen/low-income student union, I serve on the board of Harvard Model Congress, I am a peer advisor for first-year students, and I am a member of the J.F.K. Junior Forum Committee within the Institute of Politics. Through these organizations and roles, I’ve become a part of such amazing communities and met so many incredible people that help to make Harvard feel like my home away from home. In my free time, I enjoy playing basketball with friends, exploring Cambridge and Boston, and watching Netflix. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me at the Harvard First Generation Program. I know that applying to college as a first-generation student can be difficult at times. Looking back on my journey, I remember everyone who supported me along the way, and I hope to do the same for you. I hope you find being a first-generation student a source of strength, and I wish you the best of luck in all your endeavors. Feel free to reach out to me!
