1. Rashida Jones
If you’ve ever watched NBC’s Parks and Recreation, You’ll know Rashida Jones for her role as Ann Perkins. Born in 1976, Rashida is an American actress, film producer, screenwriter, comic author, and singer. As a youngster she attended The Buckley School in California where she made the National Honor Society. It was there that her classmates voted her “Most Likely to Succeed” and they weren’t wrong. At Buckley, Rashida became heavily involved with theatre, and attended the same school as Kim Kardashian, Nicole Richie, and Paris Hilton.
After graduating high school, Rashida made her way to none other than Harvard University where she belonged to theatrical and dramatic clubs, student associations, and other societies, as well as being resident of Eliot House. While Rashida initially wanted to become a lawyer, she changed her mind after becoming disheartened by the O.J. Simpson trial.
She then threw herself into performing arts. She graduated from Harvard in 1997 and while she went on to pursue a degree in acting, she further showed off her musical abilities by writing scores of Harvard’s infamous Hasty Pudding Club.
