My name is Dianelis and I am doing a joint concentration in Molecular and Cellular Biology with Romance Languages and Literature. I was born in Cuba and moved to the United States when I was ten years old. My upbringing has fueled my interests in research, nonprofit work, and languages. I am passionate about helping impoverished communities in Latin America and donating supplies to those in need. On campus, I am involved with Latinos in Health Careers, lupus research, writing for pre-medical magazines, and service work with PBHA. In my leisure time, I enjoy exploring Boston with friends and searching for cheap plane tickets. I look forward to meeting you all and continuing to make a positive impact in the Harvard community.
