2024

My name is Jen Hughes and I'm a freshman currently studying remotely from my home state of New Hampshire. 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 junior 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.
