Event Details

It’s a university that’s taught the likes of Barack Obama, Mark Zuckerberg and Natalie Portman.

Now Hastings’ very own Chantel Slade will also walk Harvard’s halls.

She had nothing to lose but everything to gain when she applied for a psychology scholarship to the famous US college while studying at Victoria University in Wellington.

The 21-year-old’s fascination for the subject started by watching television shows such as Criminal Minds as well as teaching young children dance while she was a Karamu High School student.
