She is also on the board of Harvard Model Congress Boston, the nation’s oldest government simulation conference run exclusively by undergraduates at Harvard College. During the school year, ImeIme works as a Research Assistant at the Hiphop Archive at the Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research.
