Sung Kwang Oh
Class of 2021 (Quincy House)
My name is Sung Kwang Oh, and I am a senior in Quincy House concentrating in Government with a secondary in Computer Science. I’m from Cherry Hill, NJ, and I’m very excited to be a Peer Concentration Counselor this year.
Within the concentration of Government, my particular interests lie in American politics (electoral politics & minority representation) and international relations (particularly on Northeast Asia). I am also interested in tech policy. Some of my favorite Government classes include: Gov 1790 American Foreign Policy with Professor Kertzer, Gov94nw Politics of Nuclear Weapons with Professor Rosen, and Gened 1058 Tech Ethics with Professor Sandel, Professor Melton, and Dr. Sergio Imparato.
Outside of classes, I have a wide range of interests that I explore through my extracurricular activities. Since freshman year, I have been involved with the Veritas Forum, which invites students to explore life’s hardest questions (ex. “What makes humans special?”) with professors and experts from Christian and other religious backgrounds. I also have been active in the theatre and arts community on campus, from performing in Harvard’s award winning acapella group, Under Construction, to acting several times with the Harvard and Radcliffe Gilbert and Sullivan Players. I have also held leadership positions in The Harvard Crimson (Multimedia Board) and the Undergraduate Council (Health, Safety, and Wellness Committee).
While my current post-college plan is to further my education with graduate school, I have also done a variety of internships. From organizing in the 2018 Midterm Elections to working at a fast-growing (and now acquired!) tech start-up in Silicon Valley, I have had the opportunity to explore various fields. Most recently, I did a six-month fellowship with Google, working in the US Elections Team during the 2020 election cycle.
If you ever have questions or want to talk about absolutely anything, please do not hesitate to reach out! I love meeting new people and look forward to hearing your story.
