Breeanna Elliott

Breeanna Elliott is an undergraduate student joint concentrating in African Studies and History. She is from the small farm town of Stamping Ground, Kentucky. Since attending Harvard she has managed to travel substantially largely due to Harvard’s generosity and her long-standing career with Dorm Crew.  Her general academic and professional focus is on East Africa where she has spent the past two years on and off living, working, and researching in Zanzibar and Tanzania. Currently, she is finishing her thesis on the nineteenth and twentieth century British-led abolition of the slave trade along the Swahili Coast. In her time away from Harvard, she served as a founding member of a local Zanzibar NGO, Sustainable East Africa, and continues to work with projects focused on advancing educational opportunities for low-income students, waste and water management, and artisanal craft production with recycled goods. She is pursuing her teaching credentials from the GSE as a UTEP student and hopes to combine her background in history, education, and community outreach at law school in the near future.
