Raphael is a rising sophomore from Thessaloniki, Greece. Starting next year, he will be living in Eliot house. Raphael studies Math and Computer Science, and he is very passionate about Portuguese.
When he is not studying, he usually spends his time talking to people in Dining Halls. He also loves traveling, playing the piano, and learning languages. This summer, Raphael will return to the beautiful beaches of Greece, and then stay at Harvard for Math Research.
