Posted on February 2, 2022
Chennai : Sai Balaji, a 2nd year BA student at Krea University, pursuing studies in economics and psychology, was recently selected by the Harvard College Project for Asian and International Relations for the Harvard conference to be held from February 18-21, 2022 at the Harvard campus.
Hailing from Chennai, a 19-year-old Sai wears many hats within the university ecosystem. He is a student ambassador, research assistant, club representative of the social awareness club “Aikyatha” and a content manager for the university newspaper “Tapestry” alongside his academics.
Obviously excited about the opportunity to be part of HPAIR, Sai says, “It’s a fantastic platform for me. I truly believe that the global ecosystem of Krea has reignited the childlike curiosity in me to constantly ask questions about various aspects of social, political and economic issues of the 21st century. KREA’s faculty, peer group and overall learning culture were instrumental in my selection for HPAIR 2022.”
Each Harvard lecture serves to create meaningful dialogue about the current socio-economic and political landscape around the world. Talking about what he’s most excited about, Sai says, “This conference gives me the opportunity to interact with a wide range of people and stakeholders. Sai’s role is specifically to voice his opinions and share his knowledge with other delegates attending the conference. Post-conference responsibilities would mean how individuals who are part of the conference attempt to implement these learnings into their research and focus on impacting the world with this.
