Sahil Handa

I am currently building ByLines. Before that, I was on the founding team at Persuasion , a publication dedicated to defending the values of a free society.

I was born in North London to Indian parents — one was born in Kenya, and the other in India. I spent three years living in India (2006 - 2009) before returning to London for high school at this grammar school. I then took a gap year to run around the world backpacking, skydiving, and dancing with strangers. I'm currently taking time off from Harvard, where I am doing a joint major in Social Studies & Philosophy and a minor in English. I also spent two terms at Jesus College, Cambridge in the Spring of 2020 (around when things went crazy.)
