Nigerian Student Becomes The First Black Female President of the Harvard Law Review

Imelme Umana has made history at Harvard University after becoming the first black woman elected as President of the Harvard Law Review. The prestigious title was once held by President Barack Obama, who became the first black man elected for the title in 1990.

Umana graduated from Harvard College in 2014 with a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree. She had a joint concentration in African American studies and the Government. She is now a Harvard Law School Ph.D candidate set to graduate in 2018 with her Doctor of Law (J.D.). Her previous titles include – Chair of the Community Action Committee, Associate Editor for the Harvard Undergraduate Law Review and President of the Student Advisory Committee.

In 2013, Umana worked as a Criminal Law Investigative intern for the Public Defenders Office in Washington D.C. (USA). Founded in 1887, the Harvard Law Review president is usually elected by the editorial board of the student-run publication.

Congrats to you Imelme. Keep making us proud!

Thanks to President Obama, ofcourse people are already exploring the possibility of having her as America’s first female President:
