Farris is originally from Mukilteo, WA – a ferry port town about 45 minutes outside of Seattle – and discovered a passion for advocacy and politics knocking doors in the Pacific Northwest rain as a 13-year-old campaign volunteer. Farris attended Harvard, majoring in Social Studies and Government and graduating magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa. They received the Paul Revere Frothington Prize, awarded to one graduating senior for strongest character and highest scholarship. After graduation, Farris attended the University of Cambridge on a Harvard-Cambridge fellowship and received an MPhil in Political Thought and Intellectual History, focusing on 20th-century legal history and theory. Farris is now headed to Harvard Law for a J.D. Outside of school, they have worked in government and law.
Farris has served as an LSAT tutor for more than a year, helping students with a wide range of scores and undergraduate experiences. Farris also served as a tutor and mentor throughout high school and college. They consider teaching a passion – and motivation for going to law school, in the hopes of becoming a law professor. They love helping people not only improve test scores or application essays – but also have a productive and calm testing and applications process.
In their spare time, Farris enjoys running, writing fiction, and attempting to hike with their very lazy dachshund, Auggie.
