Bianca Mona Corgan (she/her/hers) is working with the Youth Leadership Programs at the Aspen Institute for one year as part of the Weil Legal Innovators (WLI) Program. In this program, incoming law students work at a WLI partner nonprofit organization for a paid public service fellowship designed to leverage their business acumen and commitment to public service, while amplifying the impact of the nonprofits and their important missions.
Growing up in a Haitian-American household in Miami, FL, Bianca found herself at the intersection of different cultures, languages and perspectives. This upbringing inspired her to pursue a degree in international affairs from Georgetown University. During her time at Georgetown, Bianca helped found MOSAIC: The Multi-Racial and Multi-Ethnic Student Group, served in student government, and was a part of the editorial board for The Hoya, Georgetown’s premier student publication. In addition to her engagements on campus, Bianca held internships with the press divisions of the Embassy of France and the U.S Department of State, as well as the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
As a member of Harvard Law School’s Junior Deferral Program, Bianca was granted the ability to defer her enrollment for two years. With this opportunity, she spent her first year clerking at a civil litigation firm in Miami, volunteering on a school board campaign, and serving as a founding member of her high school’s Alumni Diversity Advisory Committee. In her spare time, Bianca enjoys playing tennis, listening to podcasts and musicals, as well as traveling.
