Adede Appah-Sampong ’23
President

My name is Adede Appah-Sampong, and I am so honored to be serving as Kuumba’s President for the 2021-2022 year. I am a Junior in Dunster House studying Molecular and Cellular Biology with a secondary in Global Health and Health Policy and a citation in Spanish. I am thrilled to be coming back to campus, welcoming new and old Kuumbabes alike to our family. Kuumba has been such a formative part of my Harvard experience, and I am so grateful to be a part of this lifelong community. Outside of Kuumba, I’m a part of PBHA’s Franklin Afterschool Enrichment program, Harvard FIMRC, and peer counseling. I am looking forward to an incredible year!

Perrin Price ’23
Vice-President

My name is Perrin Price, and I am a junior in Adams House. I am concentrating in Applied Mathematics and pursuing a secondary in Music. I joined Kuumba because of my love of embracing and celebrating my Black heritage and culture, and my love of singing. I served as Assistant Director last year and I am excited to continue working on the board as vice-president. When I am not in Kuumba, I enjoy volunteering with the IOP’s Citizenship Tutoring program and working in the Admissions Office. I also enjoy cooking, writing and producing music, and going on evening walks. I am excited to reconvene this year back at Harvard and re-foster the Kuumba community on campus.
