Meet Your New Topic Editors!
I am constantly amazed by how fast our time at HBS goes by. This month marks my first anniversary with the Harbus and true to form, we are excited to welcome the new crop of Topic Editors who will add investigative, thought-provoking, and well-rounded stories to our pages in the months ahead.
— Upoma Dutta, Editor-in-Chief
Felipe Cerón, Entertainment Editor
As our late Robin Williams put it, “medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.” I will bring out the latest and most interesting stories related to the world of the arts, focusing on the entertainment industry. I will cover news from how the industry is dealing with the current challenges, bring advice on how to break into the industry, and help share alumni and current student voices.
Israt Tarin, Campus News Editor
People make HBS. This is more true than ever as we grapple with Covid-19 and following the required social distancing protocols. The concept of a campus is no longer represented by concrete buildings or neatly mowed lawns; rather campus has now come to signify a community that lives online. I want to bring stories to you that are about our community, about what is happening at HBS and also about what we wish would happen at HBS. I want to bring to you stories that will change the narrative on inclusion by shifting our perspectives and stories that will introduce us to ideas, words, and foods that we have never heard of before. Ideas we can build on, words we may want to learn, and foods we would want to try.
Mike Kelly, Entrepreneurship Editor
Entrepreneurship, with all its ups and downs, attracts some of the most driven and passionate people. In my prior work with startups, I always left conversations with entrepreneurs feeling inspired by their visions. I am thrilled to join the Harbus team as the Entrepreneurship Editor, where I hope to share stories that inspire the next generation of HBS founders. I will cover startups across industries and geographies, and I hope to highlight the founders tackling some of the world’s most pressing issues, including food security, education, and sustainability.
Nishkam Prabodh, Satire Editor
Satire and honesty are like socks. They should ideally come in a pair, and you never have enough of them. Given my intense passion for the frivolous, the trivial and the bizarre, I am thrilled to join as the Satire Editor at the Harbus. I pledge to bring you honest, logical stories which I hope will make you laugh.
Noelia Lombardo Gava, Women Leadership Editor
The stories we read, we listen to, we tell, inevitably shape our understanding of the world. Storytelling, thus, has the power to transform that view; to expand it to unimagined horizons. In the words of the great female leader Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, “when we reject the single story, when we realize that there is never a single story about any place, we regain a kind of paradise.” For years, leadership stories have been centered around male figures. Male leadership has become the single story. Given my personal quest to transform that single story, I am delighted to be joining as the Women Leadership Editor at the Harbus. With great responsibility, I will interview female leaders and share their incredible stories. I hope to inspire the HBS community by widening our definition of leadership.
