Hello, everyone! My name is Brian Hyun Seo, and I am a rising junior at Harvard College, concentrating in Economics with a secondary in History of Science and a Language Citation in Korean. On-campus, I spend most of my time studying and training - I am on the Men's Lightweight Rowing team. During my free time, I enjoy playing the guitar and listening to EDM.

Ramona Park
Harvard University
Hi there! I'm a junior majoring in Art, Film, and Visual Studies at Harvard University and taking additional coursework in creative writing. I am a Korean heritage student and also pursuing a language citation in Japanese! As a FGLI (First Generation-Low Income) student, I have much experience navigating financial aid, scholarships, fly-in programs, and other related resources. In addition, I had a rollercoaster of a ride being admitted ED to UPenn but then withdrawing, and also switching majors from computer science to art, so I feel equipped to help you with any and every existential crisis. In high school I had a heavy focus on journalism and model UN, however now at Harvard most of my extracurricular activities consist of dance, performing arts, and international relations programs. In my free time, I enjoy illustrating my webtoon and watching 90 Day fiance!
