My name is SYED AGMAL ALI and I am an urban planning student at Harvard University. I am determined to employ urban analytics, planning, and policy to help grow communities that are better connected and defy the socio-spatial determinants of health and wealth.
Before graduate school, I spent 3.5 years setting digital communications strategy for FoodCorps, a national nonprofit connecting kids to healthy food in school. I worked to expand the organization’s social media audience, redesign our website as part of a brand refresh, and collaborate cross-functionally on fundraising, recruitment, and advocacy campaigns.
I graduated in 2013 from Wesleyan University with a Bachelor of Arts in Government and English. At Wesleyan, I led student government committees on community building and information technology as well as served as student representative on the university’s Board of Trustees. I was a contributor and editor for the independent student life blog Wesleying and a staff writer for the college newspaper, The Wesleyan Argus.
