Sophia Wang

Class of
FY24 Chief Operations Officer

Hi, I'm


and I work at



Sophia is a sophomore from New York City currently living in Leverett. She is planning to concentrate in History with a secondary in AFVS. Outside of HSA, Sophia is an associate on the Crimson's business board and is involved in HackHarvard as Co-Director of Marketing & Design. She enjoys binge-watching documentaries/docuseries and shows, hanging out with friends, creating art, and traveling.

How is it being COO of a company?

Being COO of HSA is definitely a lot of fun and a great learning experience. Transitioning from a more creative field — marketing — to an operations-heavy and financial role, I had the opportunity to approach problem-solving in a more creative strategic way. The cool part of being COO is definitely learning how everything — from the software to the strategies of each agency — integrates together to form the infrastructure of the day-to-day operations of this company.

How did you start working at HSA?

After learning about the hands-on experience of HSA at virtual Visitas, I decided to apply for the Summer Marketing Bootcamp. I loved my experience, and I joined HSA in September 2021 as the FY23 Marketing Manager of The Harvard Shop. On my first day of work, I was welcomed with warmth, and I was surprised by the supportive community — especially in allowing me to run with a crazy idea.

What is your favorite part about HSA?

My favorite part about HSA is definitely the people. HSA is run by students — that means working with people the same age as you, which is a lot of fun!
