Executive Leadership

Menat Bahnasy
she/her/hers
President

My name is Menat Bahnasy and I'm a junior studying Economics, Government, Middle Eastern Studies, and Arabic. I'm humbled and full of gratitude to serve as the President of the Institute of Politics for the 2021 year. I first learned what service meant as a Girl Scout at a young age, and have since held service closely in all that I do. I'm a firm believer in the power of politics and public service to effect change and make our world more equitable, just, and happy. I'm looking forward to creating an IOP that will meet the moment, bring everyone to the table, and share our wealth of knowledge outward to ultimately activate and energize in making an impact and effecting tangible change. Beyond the IOP, I serve as the President of the Harvard College Democrats, a Peer Advising Fellow (PAF) for first-year students, a Student Academic Integrity Fellow (SAIF), and a Campus Ambassador. A lover of learning about the world, I seek new ways to expand my worldview and to meet new people. On any given day, I can be found sipping on jasmine tea, running or biking along the Charles River, and laughing at anything and everything!

Kevin Ballen

Vice President

My name is Kevin Ballen, and I'm a Junior originally from Boston living in Currier House and studying Sociology. This year, I am excited to serve as the IOP's Vice President.

Over this next year, I am looking forward to defining the IOP's membership experience, promoting opportunities for student leadership and innovation, strengthening pathways into public service, and ensuring the IOP serves as a civic hub not only for our Harvard community, but for young people across the country. Before coming to Harvard, I worked for two years running youth civic and social-emotional learning programming in the Boston area. On Campus, I plan events for the College Events Board, teach laughter yoga, and eat a lot of Chinese food!

Ethan Johnstone
he/him/his
Treasurer

My name is Ethan Johnstone, and I am a Sophomore living in San Diego. My love for politics stems from the lessons I learned from my home – I’m from a very big family, and I attended a large public high school in Southern California, so I’ve always been surrounded by diverse range of voices and ideas. At a young age, I saw firsthand how truly powerful diversity is, whether it was organizing a school-wide walkout against gun violence or holding a city-wide voter registration drive. Here at Harvard, I plan on concentrating in government and eventually studying law in the hopes of helping change the U.S.’s broken criminal justice system and give a voice to those without one. Outside of the IOP, I am the Vice Chairman of the Academic Life Committee on the Undergraduate Council, on the board for Harvard's Club Tennis Team, and the Treasurer of the Constitutional Law Society. Ultimately, I hope to bring the many lessons I have learned and my excitement to leave a positive impact on the community to the role of IOP Treasurer.

Student Advisory Committee Leadership

she/her/hers
CIVICS

My name is Tarina Ahuja, I am a member of the Class of 2024 from Northern Virginia just outside of DC! I am deeply dedicated to fostering empathy in politics and governance as we center and amplify the experiences of our fellow human beings.  My interest in politics stems back to when I was 10 years old when there was a shooting at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin. During this difficult time, I saw the power of community mobilization and resilience in the face of deep adversity. In my role as the IOP Co-Chair of CIVICS, I hope to continue strengthening students’ understanding our democratic institutions while ensuring they can harness the power they possess as change-makers no matter how hold they are. Working with the IOP and greater Harvard community, I want to build the civic strength and power of young people by expanding our outreach and making our curriculum even more accessible and inclusive to students of all backgrounds. Outside of CIVICS, I am an enthusiastic member of FSG, WIL, a member of the Undergraduate Council, and co-founder and president of a youth-led policy think tank called the Greater Good Initiative. Otherwise, you can find me hiking, watching a little too much Grey’s Anatomy, doing Bhangra (a dance originating from Punjab), making bad puns, or cheering on Chicago sports teams!

Co-Director of Special Projects

My name is Jacob Blair and I am a junior in Currier studying neuroscience and philosophy. I used to be one of the Chairs for the Politics of Race and Ethnicity but currently serve as one of the Directors of Special Projects.

As a director of special projects I am devoted to initiatives that highlight inclusivity and diversity in our programming. Outside of the IOP, I am a volunteer with the Small Claims Advisory Service and a staffer for Indigo. In my free time you can find me listening to the newest music or trying to find some good food.

I will be working with the rest of the HPR masthead to expand our growing digital audience and ensure that we continue to print timely and incisive analysis of political issues and public policy — from examining the implications of the pandemic or spotlighting stories of overlooked environmental harms to offering nuanced cultural criticism. Over the next year, I am especially excited to invest more in our writers and their development as researchers, journalists, podcasters and politicos. Outside of the HPR, I am involved with volunteer tutoring, Harvard’s EJS Center for Ethics, the Honor Council, and the Harvard international community. In my free time, I enjoy writing film reviews and “exploring” digital museum exhibits.

Anan Hafez
he/him/his
JFK Jr. Forum

My name is Anan Hafez, and I am a junior in Eliot House studying Government and Economics from Los Angeles, California. I am thrilled to be serving as the chair of the JFK Jr. Forum this year! As a Muslim-American raised in the shadow of 9/11, and the child of refugees, I have always understood my position to be a precarious one, but I knew early on that I wanted to gain a deeper understanding of the interplay between vulnerable communities like mine and the politics that govern them. Since then, my efforts have been focused on fostering political education and action for young people like me who may lack the network, resources, or political know-how to get involved. I firmly believe that participating in the political and legislative arena is the best way for us to combat the direct and indirect injustices we see every day. On campus, I'm a research assistant for Professor Cornell William Brooks where I help teach a class on state and local policy solutions for COVID-19 and police reform. I'm also an active member of the Harvard Islamic Society, where I previously served as Director of Development, and an analyst for the Harvard College Consulting Group. In my free time, you might find me exploring new restaurants in the Boston area or cheering too loudly for the Lakers with my roomates.

Jen Hughes
she/her/hers
Campaigns and Advocacy Program

My name is Jen Hughes and I'm a sophomore in Quincy House. I am extremely excited to be chairing the Campaigns and Advocacy Program at the IOP. I became interested in politics and campaigning while growing up in New Hampshire, where we host the first-in-the-nation primary during the presidential election cycle. This meant that I grew up on the receiving end of campaign outreach which motivated me to get involved with candidates I believe in. At Harvard I plan to study Government and am interested in the intersection of science and politics. In addition to CAP I have also been involved in HPU and HVC at the Institute of Politics. Outside of the IOP, I am a Senior Staffer for Harvard Model Congress, and a member of the Harvard Cheerleading team. In my free time you'll find me passionately defending Dunkin's Iced Coffee or binge-watching a new TV show on Netflix.

Joseph Jang
he/him/his
STEAM

My name is JJ, and I am a sophomore in Kirkland House pursuing a joint concentration in History of Science and Sociology. I was born in Korea, but grew up in La Crescenta, California. Admittedly, my interest in policy and public service was superficial until I took Dr. Palfrey’s first-year seminar regarding Child Health in America. Since then, I have better understood the capabilities that policy and public service have in driving and creating meaningful change in our communities, and what it really means to be an advocate. I have also always valued an interdisciplinary education as I found approaching my academic interests using multiple disciplines to be extremely rewarding. This year, as the IOP STEAM chair, I hope to make engaging with the interdisciplinary nature of politics just as rewarding for STEAM members as it is for me. Outside of the IOP, I serve as the Secretary of the Asian American Association (AAA) and conduct archival research on the history of pain in children. In my free time, you can catch me surfing Disney+, playing beach volleyball, or cruising to Boston to eat with friends!

I study Neuroscience with a secondary in Global Health and Health Policy, and am excited to serve as Co-Chair of the Policy Program.

Alexander Park
he/him/his
Harvard Votes Challenge

My name is Alex, and I am a member of the Class of 2023 in Eliot House originally from Belmont, MA. At the College, I concentrate in Government on the Public Policy track with a secondary in Economics. This year, I am serving as one of the Co-Chairs of the Harvard Votes Challenge, working to institutionalize voting systems and building a culture of civic engagement at the College and University level.

I also realized that voting and participating in your community from a young age will lead to a lifetime of civic engagement. I am looking forward to getting Harvard students excited about voting and civic participation so that we can strengthen our communities and make sure our government is truly representative of our wants and needs.

When not at the IOP, I can be found dancing with the Harvard Breakers, writing for The Crimson, and conducting research on renewable energy.
