Episode 20: Lexi Ibrahimi
Donor Services Staff Assistant
In this conversation, Lexi tells stories about her childhood in Greece and Albania where she lived until she was 18 years old before coming to the US for school. Edgar and Lexi discuss the influence of Albanian culture, and how it has shaped Lexi’s values, the difference in food in Albania, Brazil and the US, and Lexi’s career. Listen in as Lexi shares stories of the community she’s developed at Harvard and her hopes for the future.
Some fun facts about Lexi:
-She likes building and putting together furniture.
-Her dream home is somewhere close to the ocean, full of animals (must have chickens!), and a garden to grow her own fruits and vegetables.
-She has always looked up to her mother. Her mother was the most selfless, bright, brave, and kind woman she knew.
-If she could tell her younger self anything she would say “Never be afraid to be yourself and to remember that your voice matters.”
