Noah Harris is a Junior at Harvard studying government from Hattiesburg, Mississippi. Harris was recently elected as the first Black Male Student Body President in Harvard’s history. He also serves as Co-Chair of the Black Caucus. On the Undergraduate Council, he is passionate about creating initiatives to help improve the experience of the student body. Following the racial injustices this past summer, Noah led an effort to raise over $45,000 for black solidarity charities. He rented a warehouse to provide low-cost storage to over 500 students, and he partnered with Headspace to provide a year-long mindfulness subscription to over 1,200 students. Harris is also a member of the Politics of Race and Ethnicity (PRE) group at the Institute of Politics. He is involved in the Phillips Brooks House Association through the David Walker Scholars Program where he mentors minority kids in the Boston area. Apart from Harvard, Harris is the author of the children’s book Successville that teaches kids they can do anything in life if they are willing to work hard in school, set goals, and develop talents.
