Fahedur Fahed

Fahed is a Senior in Adams House pursuing a concentration in History & Science with a secondary in Global Health & Health Policy. He has been staffing the Harvard Square Homeless Shelter since 2014. Because his family was fortunate enough to be placed into a Cambridge public housing project, it has been ingrained to return what was given to him and that is why he needed to remain in the Boston area for college to continue to show up for his community through PBHA. Fahed has always been grateful for PBHA, crediting this organization for helping him matriculate at Harvard and inspiring him to come full circle to become Vice President of PBHA while also directing the HSHS (both term-time and summer shelter), CYEP, and CYEP Extension. Because of his experience with street outreach to people experiencing homelessness and opioid addiction in the Greater Boston Area, he became involved in organizing with Harvard College Overdose Prevention and Education (HCOPES) to advocate for policy reform by de-stigmatizing substance use, and he is currently writing his senior thesis on the topic. Fahed serves as an EMT with CrimsonEMS where he is very involved with outreach by leading the Youth Education Task Force — a workshop aimed towards instructing high school students and showing them how to save a life in common medical emergencies like cardiac arrest, opioid overdoses, hemorrhagic bleeding, choking, and anaphylaxis. Fahed also is a former participant and mentor with the Crimson Summer Academy. He tutors these low-income, first-generation high school students in all subjects throughout the year, prepares them for the SAT/ACT and college interviews, and he revises all of their college applications and scholarship essays.
