Hometown & Country
I was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa.
I am a rising sophomore so will only declare my concentration at the end of first semester. I am hoping to declare either Anthropology or History and Science.
I am really involved in the international society, working on the Woodbridge Board and the South African Society Board. I also work at Boston Children's Hospital as a child patient advocate.
Favorite place in Harvard Square
Otto Pizzeria hands down!
What can FIPpers talk to you about?
FIPpers can chat to me about anything from how to navigate courses to dealing with all the admin of being an international student at Harvard.
Why should a freshman choose FIP?
FIP was where I made some of my closest friends! You will always have your FIP family and the international community!
Nikita was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa. Before she came to Harvard she took a gap year to further her university debating career, sail in South Africa and just explore her home country. Nikita is a rising sophomore who will be living in Winthrop House. She plans to declare her concentration at the end of this first semester in either Anthropology or History and Science. She has invested her time into building the international community at Harvard and also works as a patient advocate at Boston's Children's Hospital. She loves learning about the world, binge watching series as deadlines approach and scuba diving! This summer, Nikita will be interning at the Harvard Business School's Africa office as part of the Harvard Global Initiatives program to research and develop case studies on socioeconomic issues and programs in Africa.
