2014 Winners Announced: Fatima Mubarak and Keyanna Wigglesworth

The 2014 Deshaun Hill & Harvard Stephens Memorial Scholarship winners are Adams House's Fatima Mubarak '15, and Cabot House's Keyanna Wigglesworth '16.

Fatima is a Harvard College Scholar who has excelled in her chosen concentration of Chemistry, balancing work as a research assistant in Theodore Betley's laboratory with her role as a teaching fellow for organic chemistry at the Harvard Extension School. She is also heavily engaged in promoting intercultural understanding through her work with the Harvard Islamic Society.

Keyanna is a Social Studies concentrator who is deeply interested in fostering conversations about identity and diversity. As a freshman, she took on the burden of saving a progressive student publication, Perspective Magazine, by assuming the roles of President and Editor during a leadership crisis, thereby keeping it alive. Recently, she's been working as a campus organizer to promote awareness of UPASS, a Boston initiative that would effectively include the cost of public transportation in local college and university tuition.

The guidance of Harvard's house administrators was essential to helping us discover these remarkable students, and the continued support of Deshaun and Harvard's family and friends, and of course the extended Harvard community, is instrumental in helping us to honor their hard work. Once again, thanks to all of you.

I would love to follow up with Keyanna Wigglesworth to learn more about how she feels about the lack of diversity within #blackivy students at Harvard University. I would consider donating to your scholarship fund after such a conversation as my limited resources allow.
