Biography

Hi y'all! My name is Jack Swanson and I'm a sophomore living in the best house on campus, Currier. I'm originally from the small mountain town of Morganton, North Carolina, where I developed a love for the outdoors and chicken biscuits. I'm super interested in foreign policy and national security, and I plan on concentrating in history. Outside of the classroom, I'm involved in the Undergraduate Council, Mock Trial, IOP Civics, and the Harvard Association for U.S.–China Relations. Beyond that, some of my favorite things include: spending time with my family, running, reading, boxing, petting dogs on the Quad lawn, and solving Rubik's cubes. When I was applying to Harvard, I felt like I always needed more help to navigate the admissions process, so I'm super excited to join the HFAI team and help answer your questions! Please feel free to reach out anytime — I would be more than happy to answer any question you may have.
