Year: 2018

Gender Pronouns: he/him/his

Bio: Hi! My name is Ted, my gender pronouns are he, him, and his, and I’m a sophomore in Quincy from Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, concentrating in African Studies. Besides QSA and school, I’m involved in PBHA’s Small Claims Advisory Service, the First-Year Urban Program, and The Crimson’s editorial board. I think a lot about social justice, politics, and sub-Saharan Africa, and I love reading, noodles, and flashcards. I’m currently working on my side abs. Wait no I’m not.

Besides all things queer, my passions include creative writing and poetry, modern and classical music, fencing, Netflix, and food. My dream job is to be a human rights lawyer focusing on LGBTQ+ issues. In the meantime, I’ll be exploring candy shops in Boston.

Year: 2019

Gender Pronouns: she/her/hers 

Bio: Hi, I’m Leah, and though I am originally from the UK (and I dearly try to cling to my British accent – try), I spent the majority of my life living in Germany, Berlin to be precise (objectively the best city in the world, though Cambridge/ Boston is kind of ok I guess). Outside of QSA, I am very interested in Science, specifically Biology and research, but also love music – especially playing the piano (though I am very bad at it), or playing the violin in the Harvard Pops Orchestra. I have always been very interested in politics, and especially in discussing different ideas and perspectives on how it can create a great society for us all to live in.

Concentration: Undeclared

Year: 2019

Gender Pronouns: she/her/hers 

Bio: Hi, my name is Melissa, and I’m a freshman in Weld, and I’ll probably concentrate in either Government or Social Studies. Besides the QSA, I’m involved in Citizenship Tutoring in the Institute of Politics and the Harvard College Democrats, and I also am a pre-college tutor at Kaplan Test Prep. I’m interested in education, politics, cats, and anime.
