Simone Elise Aduke Abegunrin

Politics of Race and Ethnicity

Simone is a senior in Currier House, concentrating in Social Studies with a focus field in American Diplomacy and International Conflict Resolution. She has been excited about international political systems since a young age, subsequently traveling and living in places such as Sweden, Nigeria, China, and Cuba. Visiting the Institute of Politics during Visitas and meeting future PRE pioneer Osaremen Okolo clinched her decision to attend Harvard, and she has been involved in PRE as a participant and Steering Committee member since her first year fall. Outside of the IOP, Simone is Publicity Co-Chair and head photographer for the Eleganza Show, research assistant for Dr. Jennifer Lerner at the Harvard Kennedy School, and part of the co-founding team of a digital healthcare startup. A Los Angeles native, Simone enjoys eating delicious food, traveling to new places, and wearing all-black outfits.
