Interns

QuInterns Fall 2018

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 signing up for a Qoffee with QuInterns chat! Please note that because outness is complicated to navigate, some of our interns may have elected not to be listed here.

Sahar

Sahar is a sophomore from California who's super interested in STEM, activism, and the potential intersections between the two. They intend to concentrate in physics. When not in the QuOffice or class, you can find them playing Dungeons & Dragons, working on their webcomic (ask them about it!), or crying about musical theater. Sahar is particularly interested in the intersections of queerness and race, and intra-community issues within the LGBTQ+ community.
