My concentration in Hist & Lit trained me to identify related themes across unrelated fields, and then become a specialist in that cross-section. No one believes me when I tell them I wrote my Harvard thesis on baseball cards, but in that very thesis I analyzed not only cultural storytelling, but also economics, legal history, political media, and social justice. Sports, tech, and media have historically been very separate career paths but I have found ways to leverage creative, tech, and business expertise in every role I've held. Beyond that, my time in Hist & Lit taught me to creatively challenge the status quo to pursue ideas I'm passionate about, which has been an invaluable tool for innovation.
