S-10ab student seeking research opportunity (12/5/14)

Justine B. Laufer
Email: justine.laufer@gmail.com

I am currently a junior in high school and am seeking a business internship or science research project for this upcoming summer. Academically, I excel in all of my subjects; however, I tend to be strongest in math and science.

This past summer I was fortunate enough to participate in the Harvard Summer School Program, where I was enrolled in the Principles of Economics (ECON S-10AB) course. The experience was rewarding and I walked away from it with a more profound knowledge of the material.

I would like to complement my classroom studies with something more tangible—hands-on research. For this reason, I look forward to having the opportunity to learn from the finest, working side-by-side with a Harvard affiliate.

Kindly contact me at the aforementioned email address to discuss any available openings.
I thank you in advance for your consideration.
