My name is Sophia Scott, and I am a junior (Class of 2025) from Los Angeles, California in Kirkland House studying Human Evolutionary Biology with a secondary field in Global Health and Health Policy. I am the Chair of the Policy Program, which is an undergraduate-run think tank that produces policy reports for government officials, nonprofits, and community organizations. Over the next year, I am looking forward to giving more students the opportunity to develop their skills in policy research and writing while working to effect real-world change. Within the IOP, I previously served as the Associate Managing Editor of the Harvard Political Review and as a CIVICS teacher. Outside of the IOP, I am involved in the Harvard Society of Black Scientists and Engineers. In my free time, I like to bike-ride by the Charles River.
