Hi! My name is Mel Oppenheim and I am currently a rising senior in Eliot house studying online legal and privacy issues in the History of Science department. Outside of DAPA, I helped found and now run the Harvard-affiliated non-profit organization, The Digital Literacy Project (, which seeks to teach low-resource teachers and students how to use technology in beneficial ways inside the classroom. I also have served on the Harvard/MIT COOP’s Board of Directors for 3 terms, which has been a really rewarding experience. My favorite hobby is photography (would recommend any of the VES photo classes) and I absolutely love dogs , food!, trying new things, and traveling.
