Hi Winthrop! My name is Irfan Mahmud, and I am very excited to be a Resident Tutor living in Gore but available to all on Zoom! Winthrop has been such a central feature of my Harvard experience. I was Winthrop 2016 myself and have been a Non-resident Tutor with my best friends and blockmates ever since we graduated. This House is the best, no doubt. I hail from Saint George, Utah which has a very different climate (both weather and political) than Cambridge, but I love both my homes. My family originally comes from Dhaka, Bangladesh, and my culture, heritage, and family is very important to me. I am lucky enough to be engaged to the one and only Kirin Gupta. Our love first started in our very own Standish Hall if you'll believe it! In undergrad, I studied Economics and Classics, I was involved with the Harvard Foundation, the Institute of Politics, the Crimson, Senior Class Committee, and a number of affinity groups. Since graduating I have been working with McKinsey & Co., Goldman Sachs, and the United Nations. I am currently a student at Harvard Law School. Outside of school and work, I love watching any and all TV shows (name one I haven't watched, I dare you), reading fantasy literature (Harry Potter will forever have my soul), and hiking and doing all sorts of outdoor activities (the desert and mountains are great places to quarantine too). I am very excited to advise on pre-business, pre-law, fellowships, public service, race relations, and LGBTQIA+, among other things. I look forward to meeting you!
