He has also stepped with the BMF, danced in Ghungroo, directed Cultural Rhythms, mentored high school students, and served on the Undergraduate Council, among other things.” At Harvard Medical School, he was president of his class and an Adams House tutor.

“I’m driven by a desire to help people live healthier, happier lives and to help organizations navigate and embrace change,” he writes in his HAA ballot statement. “Harvard must continue to produce new knowledge and sit at the center of innovation, create a diverse and safe community where students can be challenged and challenge each other, and cultivate a sense of purpose and commitment to justice.”
