The Team


Jin Park

Founder and co-director

I am a student at Harvard College studying life science and philosophy. Higher Dreams was first conceived after I had finished my college application process. As an undocumented student, it was very difficult to navigate an already intricate system; I knew there were resources online, but I felt that a website that synthesized all these resources and provided personalized insight would have been invaluable for me as I was applying to college.

I grew up in the Bronx and recently graduated from McGill University, where I pursued a double major in sociology and cell/molecular biology. My goal with Higher Dreams is to assist students achieve higher education by providing them with the tools necessary to succeed.
