My name is Kirthi Chigurupati and I am sophomore (Class of 2026) from West Windsor, New Jersey in Kirkland studying Government, South Asian Studies, and Computer Science. I am the co-chair of JFK Jr. Forum, which brings distinguished academics, politicians, and others to Harvard in the hopes of increasing necessary dialogue. Over the next year, I am looking to bring new and timely topics to the Forum with an emphasis on diversity. At Harvard, I am involved in the South Asian Association, Ghungroo, and Eleganza. I have also previously worked at the International Bar Association and have volunteered for education programs in India. In my free time, I love dancing and meeting new people.
