5 Questions 4 Harini Venkatesh ‘25

Before heading home for the summer, Rising Third Former Harini Venkatesh took a moment to tell us her favorite songs, who she’d like to meet around a Harnkess table, and where she’d like to travel. All this and more in 5 Questions 4!  

What song can you listen to on repeat?

The two songs I have on repeat right now are “Knee Socks” by Arctic Monkeys and “In Bloom” by nirvana, but most of my playlists consist of basically anything by the neighborhood of Arctic Monkeys, Nirvana, or Metallica.

What is your favorite time of the day?

Anytime I have coffee.

Which fictional character from a book or movie would you most like to meet?

Definitely either Elizabeth Bennet (“Pride and Prejudice”) or Minny Jackson (“The Help”) because they defied the stereotypes set for them and women in general in their respective societies.

If you could have a Harkness discussion with any three people, past or present, whom would you choose?

Rupi Kaur, Gregory Pardlo, and Sarah Kay

If you could have an all-expenses-paid trip anywhere, where would you go?

Probably Tuscany, Italy. I would so love to see the Costiera di Calafuria.
