Interns

 

Our undergraduate interns (“QuInterns”) are current Harvard undergraduates who are passionate about issues related to gender and sexuality. As members of the Office of BGLTQ Student Life team, QuInterns are ambassadors for the Office, both ensuring that students have accurate and timely information about the Office’s programs and services, and communicating the needs of the BGLTQ student community back to the Office. QuInterns develop, implement, and evaluate events, resources, and initiatives related to Campus Education, Programming, and Communications.

If you want to talk to a current intern about your experiences, or you have questions navigating queerness and queer life at Harvard, consider reaching out and/or signing up for Qoffee with QuInterns. Please note that because outness is complicated to navigate, some of our interns may have elected not to be listed here.

Intern Kendall

Kendall

Kendall is a sophomore in Quincy House studying chemical & physical biology and the history of science, technology, and medicine. Originally from southern California’s rural Imperial Valley, they hope to connect with and help support other students who hail from backgrounds vastly different from Harvard. Kendall also lives with several lifelong medical conditions, and is passionate about celebrating queer disabled identities. Outside of the QuOffice, you can find Kendall conducting biochemistry research in a lab on the Harvard Medical School campus, looking all over Cambridge for fluffy dogs to pet, consuming too many Darwin’s iced oat milk lattes, or teaching art classes as the Quincy House Pottery Studio Coordinator.

Intern Ilinca

Ilinca

Ilinca (she/her) is a junior in Dunster, concentrating in Molecular and Cellular Biology with a secondary in Global Health and Health Policy. She was born and raised in Chisinau, Republic of Moldova. Within the QuOffice, her focus is creating a safe space for queer international students and queer first-generation/low-income students. She loves to talk about science, research, photography, traveling and international politics.

Intern Abby

Abby

Abby (she/her) is a sophomore in Kirkland House studying Sociology. Originally from the suburbs of Philadelphia, Abby is especially passionate about interfaith engagement and the intersectionality between queerness and religion. In her free time, she loves to spend time with animals, read queer novels, and make things of all sorts (but currently especially to sew, crochet, and quilt).
