My name is Dianelis Lopez and I am planning to do a joint concentration in Molecular and Cellular Biology with Romance Languages and Literature. I was born in Cuba and moved to the Unite States when I was ten years old. My upbringing has fueled my interest in the research field, 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, HIV research, writing for pre-medical magazines, and service work with PBHA. On my leisure time, I enjoy exploring Boston with friends and searching for cheap plane tickets. I look forward to meeting new people in my sophomore year and continuing to make a positive impact in the Harvard community.
