Olutoyin Demuren

Olutoyin grew up in the suburbs of Southern Virginia, where topics like diversity were rarely discussed. Only when she arrived in her later years of high school did she begin to passionately advocate for cultural acknowledgement and social justice. As a woman of color, she wishes to bring light to the issue of racialized misogyny and how the many systems of oppression affect the daily lives of her peers. She seeks to use the Foundation as a platform to utilize Harvard's diversity, so that every individual in the Harvard community has the chance to understand both themselves and others more deeply.
