MEET OUR BOARD FOR THIS YEAR!
Keep reading to see where they went to school, what they did in between college and HLS, who (dead or alive) they’d have chai with, and their goals for SALSA this year!
RAJ SALHOTRA- President
Raj is from Houston, Texas and loves all things Houston particularly our sports teams, the Rockets, the Astros, and the Texans. He studied Economics and Public Policy at Rice University and served as Teach For America Corps Member before law school. He taught Pre-Calculus and AP Statistics for 11th and 12th grade. This past summer he worked at the Baker Botts in Houston.
He would like to have chai with President Obama to better understand how he overcame the numerous challenges in his path and always persevered.
Raj’s goals for SALSA are: (1) to engage the South Asian Community both within the law school and alumni and (2) ensure that students receive mentorship and guidance to reach their career goals.
SABRINA KHAN – Vice President for Social Events
Sabrina is from the beautiful and hilly northern Virginia, and didn’t go far to attend college at Georgetown University. She broke from her mid-Atlantic roots for the first time to try New England as a 1L. This past summer, she interned at the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the EDVA.
Nothing warms her soul like chicken biryani and chai. If Sabrina were to have chai with anyone, she would pick Mindy Kaling.
Her goal for SALSA is to create mentorship opportunities within the community and bond through many social opportunities throughout the year.
HARMANN SINGH – Vice President of Finance
Harmann is from Buffalo, New York—the greatest city in the world—and is a huge Buffalo Bills fan. He studied Math and Economics at Columbia University, and worked at the Sikh American Legal Defense and Education Fund (SALDEF) before law school. This past summer he worked at the ACLU’s Racial Justice Program in New York.
Given the choice, he’d share a cup of chai with his great-great-grandparents, so he could piece together his family history and learn more about what their life was like.
Harmann’s goals for SALSA are to help create a more cohesive community of South Asians and help the group engage with all students of color at the law school.
