Harman Academy welcomes new fellows
At the ceremony, inductee Pavitra Krishnamani, a double major in psychology and global medicine who took part in a project about influenza vaccination in Morocco, gave a speech reflecting on the academy’s role in her USC education.
“I’ve always put my heart into a variety of different activities,” she said. “I call it having a passion for life; having a passion for art, history, music, dance, biology — all things that make us human and jointly all things that help us understand what it means to be human.
“Engaging in interdisciplinary discussions at the Harman Academy has helped me gain a better understanding of exactly that, of humanity,” she added. “I truly believe that it’s a place where we can celebrate life.”
