Jared Bishop '24
Howdy! Jared, a sophmore from California, is thrilled to be working at the Hurford center. He is an aspiring English Major, and in his free time he loves to cook, watch horror movies, and play folk music. On campus, catch Jared at any of The Throng Improv Comedy shows or sitting in the viola section of the orchestra.
Reesha Gandhi '24
Reesha is a sophomore from India who is prospectively going to major in psychology and minor in visual studies and health studies. She is involved with the South Asian Society, the Spotlight Theatre Company, and does photography for the college, so you’ll probably see her around with a camera! Among these interests, she does art in her free time, watches a lot of movies, and loves anything to do with nature. She is extremely excited to work with the Hurford Center and get more deeply involved in the program.
Hedy Goodman '23
Hedy is a junior from Rhode Island majoring in physics and astronomy, eager to continue serving the Hurford Center. Besides a necessary arts fix in her own life, the Center’s outreach is the perfect platform for her to bridge the gap between STEM and the arts- a symbiotic relationship, she believes. Outside of academia, Hedy runs for the women’s cross-country and track teams (go Bees!), enjoys the occasional piano or guitar session, and will challenge anyone to a chess match. And while she may be found peering through a telescope at Strawbridge Observatory on a clear Friday night, you’ll definitely find her having a blast at the FUCS show on Saturday. In consuming so much of the student life here, she hopes to encourage student art and expression as a medium to call for change and reform.
Aby Isakov '24
Aby is a sophomore from New York and a prospective Film and Media Studies Major and a Sociology or Anthropology minor. She is looking forward to working with the HCAH for the first time and is excited to learn about and engage with the events on campus this year. Aside from HCAH, Aby does videography for the Bi-Co Orchestra and leads Haverford’s table tennis club. She also loves watching films and tv shows (and is always looking for recs), going biking, listening to music on max volume, and doing photography. She is excited to meet creative people on campus and hear what they are watching, listening to, reading, or working on this semester (and maybe even collaborate on something together!).
Shayleah Jenkins '22
Shay is a senior English major and Visual Studies minor from Boise, Idaho. She is a Questbridge and Chesick scholar and can be found anywhere there’s free stuff on campus! In her free time, she loves to watch movies, listen to old man music, and procrastinate on school work. Feel free to ask her about her thesis (it's on Springsteen and she's very excited)!
Jalen Martin '23
Jalen is a junior English major and Visual Studies minor from The Bronx, New York. He is very excited to work for the Hurford Center this year and help students make their creative ideas come to life. On campus, he's also a Mellon Mays Fellow, a Writing Center Tutor, a Communications Office assistant, and a member of the shoegazing editorial board. In his free time, Jalen enjoys taking long naps, watching basketball and baseball, and memorizing movie casts.
Kennedy Mutai '23
Ken is a junior from Nakuru, Kenya majoring in economics. In his free time, he likes running, playing soccer, and watching movies. He likes hanging out at VCAM enjoying the serene environment. Feel free to reach out to him in case you have any questions about HCAH.
Bridge Schaad '25
Bridge is a first year from Massachusetts and she can’t wait to be a part of the Hurford Center team. She does not know what she will be majoring in quite yet, but is enjoying the process of figuring it out. Bridge likes spending time outside with friends on campus, listening to podcasts, and being a part of the mock trial team. She does not do any sports at Haverford but loves to roller skate and is always looking for someone to go skating with. Bridge loves to talk about and find new music to listen to, and welcomes any recommendations.
Benjamin Zheng '25
Benjamin is a freshman from Shanghai looking to have a great time at Haverford. He would likely major in philosophy, knowing the risk of leading a boring life. But for now, he writes poetry, plays badminton, and does Mock Trial. If you see an Asian guy with a computer bag and power walking all the time, that’s likely him. Please don’t refrain from stopping him on his way, for he has no better things to do than chatting with you, dear friends.
