Hello everyone! My name is Ivan Montik and I am currently a senior at Harvard College living in Cabot House. Here, I am concentrating in neuroscience while pursuing a secondary degree in economics and a Spanish citation. I grew up in Pleasanton, California, which is in the San Francisco Bay Area. Obviously, I’m a huge fan of the Golden State Warriors, the Oakland Raiders, and warm weather.  On campus, I work as a research assistant at the Center for Brain Science and I also volunteer as a senior staffer for Harvard Model Congress. In my down time, I enjoy reading, binge-watching my favorite Netflix shows, and eating. I am so privileged to have a platform through the Harvard Financial Aid Initiative, as a student coordinator, to be able to share my undergraduate journey with you all. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me about anything!
