Kate Swain Smith ’19 is this year’s Harvard Presidential City of Boston Fellow. The full-time fellowship is a collaboration between Harvard and the City of Boston, and was designed to foster an interest in, and create a pipeline to, civic-oriented careers.⠀ ⠀ Born and raised in Roslindale, MA, Swain Smith attended local public schools before coming to Harvard, and she interned for City Councilor Michelle Wu while still in high school. While at Harvard, she concentrated in government with a secondary in Spanish.⠀ ⠀ “It’s meaningful to be on this side of it now,” she said. “Coming from the constituent side and getting to work for the city, it’s really cool to see how much the city is doing that I didn’t even know about.”⠀ ⠀ Photo:   @rosie_lincoln  /Harvard Staff Photographer

“To my father, whose left leg was afflicted with polio: Thank you for teaching me what it means to be a man and to walk with dignity.” - William Mbongo⠀ ⠀ --⠀ ⠀ After the recent White Coat Ceremony at Harvard Medical School, medical and dental students reflected on the people in their lives who helped them most.⠀ ⠀   #Harvard     #WhiteCoat  ⠀ ⠀ Photo:   @rosie_lincoln  /Harvard Staff Photographer

“From a young age, we learned the importance of perseverance and the significance of giving back from our parents — our father was a refugee who fled dictator Idi Amin’s Uganda with $23, and our mother was an immigrant from Tanzania, sponsored by one of her eight sisters who had moved to Canada. Our parents met in Toronto and have been married for 30 years. When they met, our mom had recently completed an associate’s degree in computer programming. She was working a full-time job and financially supported our father through dental school. It is truly a miracle for both of us to be studying at Harvard today. Feeling humbled and beyond grateful is an understatement of how we felt upon receiving our acceptances. We both want to make outreach a pillar of how we practice dentistry. We want to dedicate our lives to helping others in underserved populations, both locally and globally.” - Natasha and Alisha Nanji⠀ ⠀ --⠀ ⠀ After the recent White Coat Ceremony at Harvard Medical School, medical and dental students reflected on the people in their lives who helped them most.⠀ ⠀   #Harvard     #WhiteCoat  ⠀ ⠀ Photo: Rose Lincoln/Harvard Staff Photographer

“As a queer and transgender person entering medicine — as a Latinx person entering medicine — I firmly believe that representation matters, and it is a prerequisite for justice.” - Nicolas Freeman⠀ ⠀ --⠀ ⠀ After the recent White Coat Ceremony at Harvard Medical School, medical and dental students reflected on the people in their lives who helped them most.⠀ ⠀   #Harvard     #WhiteCoat  ⠀ ⠀ Photo: Rose Lincoln/Harvard Staff Photographer

“I especially want to dedicate this day to my mother, Ty Harps, who raised me as a single mother and had me at the age of 18 years old. Technically speaking, I’m not supposed to be here. Statistically speaking, this is a miracle. And Mommy, you so silently are the architect behind all of my dreams and the dreams of so many in our family. And I just want you to know that you are the first superhero that I ever came to know. And I want you to know I have the privilege of putting on this white coat and feeling like a superhero because of you. Thank you for giving me the privilege to even wear it. And lastly, to all the little black girls out there: You can’t be what you can’t see, but I hope you see me now, and I hope you see yourself in me.” - LaShyra “Lash” Nolen⠀ ⠀ --⠀ ⠀ After the recent White Coat Ceremony at Harvard Medical School, medical and dental students reflected on the people in their lives who helped them most.⠀ ⠀   #Harvard     #WhiteCoat   ⠀ ⠀ Photo: Rose Lincoln/Harvard Staff Photographer

First-year student J.D. Deal brought a special shell with him to Harvard from his home in Des Moines, Iowa. The shell, given to him by his father when he was young, is covered with the image of a Scorpio, along with the dates of his astrological sign. At Harvard the shell has a prime spot on his desk in Weld Hall to remind him of his “huge connection to my family.”⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ---⠀ We asked first-year students to share a special item they brought from home.   #Harvard2023     #Harvard   ⠀ ⠀ Photo: Stephanie Mitchell/Harvard Staff Photographer
