Biography

Kamwene! My name is Innocent (Inno) Munai, and I am a first-year student at Harvard College thinking of concentrating in Mathematics, or Computer Science, or both! I hail from Iringa, Tanzania, where I grew up in a village called Ilula, lying south of the Great Ruaha River. What I wrote up there in italics is my Kihehe (native language) salutation translating to "Greetings!". Outside of class, I am involved with the Harvard African Students Association (HASA), Harvard College Faith and Action (HCFA), and Harvard Yearbook Publications as an aspiring Photo Board member. In addition to working as a HFAI Student Coordinator, I work as a Tutor for HSA (Harvard Student Agencies) Tutoring, and as a Delivery Associate for HSA Cleaners and Dorm Essentials. As a low-income, international student and the first in my family to attend college in the US, I hope to use what I have experienced so far to discuss student life at Harvard, and help prospective students understand how financial aid works at Harvard as well as navigate the application process in general.
