Hello! My name is Maria De Leon, and I am currently a senior living in Mather House. I’m from Chicago, IL, but I was born in the Philippines and lived there for six years before moving to America. I am concentrating in Molecular and Cellular Biology and am on the Pre-Med track, so if anyone has any questions about STEM at Harvard, please reach out! I am the External Public Relations officer for Harvard’s Philippine Forum, and I’m also a member of District 1, which is part of the Filipino Intercollegiate Networking Dialogue. In that role, I communicate with other schools’ Filipino clubs in the Greater Boston area. When I’m not running around between universities in Boston, I’m usually studying for exams, working in a mice laboratory, hanging out with friends, or watching Netflix. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions about Harvard!
