Biography: Hello, my name is Skylar-Bree Takyi, and I’m a freshman at Harvard College from Newark, New Jersey. After four incredible years at a boarding school in Massachusetts, I graduated cum laude from Phillips Academy Andover in June 2016. During my time at Andover I was a prefect in a freshman dormitory, studied abroad in Madrid, Spain, taught a class on adolescent and identity issues called Personal and Community Education, and served for two years as the Managing Editor of our newspaper, The Phillipian. I found a lot of fulfillment in artistic outlets as well – performing as Motormouth Maybelle in our production of Hairspray, singing in an R&B/neo-soul band with my best friend, and completing my first novella in the spring of my senior year. I can’t wait to continue my love for performing and writing at Harvard.
