Danielle Geathers contested with her classmate, Yu Jing Chen in a student body election at MIT and the result of the vote came in on 2nd May 2020. She won with 28 votes margin.
Danielle, age 20, is the first black female President of MIT Undergraduate Student Body. She attended Miami Country Day School where she graduated in 2018.
As MIT Student Body President, “My main goal is to ensure that our transition from Covid-19 include as many students as it could in the decision-making process. I actually meet seven times a week with administrators talking about fall,” she says.
After graduation, Geathers plans to pursue a career in Patent Law and help close what she described as “the racial innovation gap.” Her plan is to amplify the voice of the multi-cultural student body.
