Economics with a Secondary in Psychology


Hi everyone! My name is Mayowa Jolayemi and I’m a sophomore in (virtual) Currier House from Los Angeles, California, planning to concentrate in Economics with a secondary in Education or Psychology. Although I grew up in warm areas (Nigeria and California), I definitely grew an appreciation for Cambridge weather and New England seasons. Apart from HFAI, I’m involved with Harvard Model Congress and Strong Women, Strong Girls, where I get to mentor high school students in civic engagement and elementary school girls, respectively. I am also part of Women in Business, where I plan events with international companies. In my (much-valued free time), I love to do digital art, calligraphy, journal, and read! I remember how daunting the college and financial aid application process was, and I’m happy to answer any of your questions about applying and life at Harvard (especially food-related ones!).
