Destinee Ramos

Destinee Ramos (she/her) is a Harvard College student Class of 2026 and research assistant for the Center for Digital Thriving.

Her interest in teens and digital well-being began in high school when she conducted a research project using fitness wearables to track her own reactions to a short social media detox. She has since expanded this work and is now working on a national research study analyzing the effects of social media usage on teenage girls’ mental and physical well being.

When she’s not analyzing data, you can find Destinee on the football field or basketball court cheering on the Crimson as a member of the Harvard cheerleading squad.
