Menat Bahnasy
Director of Special Projects
2022

My name is Menat, and I am a sophomore residing in Eliot House studying Economics, Government, and Arabic. I am originally from North Plainfield, New Jersey. My passion for public service began when I became a Girl Scout at a very young age. Ever since, I have worked hard to embrace service in all that I do. I am a firm believer in the power of politics and public service to effect change for all people, and that belief is what drives my engagement. This year, I am serving as the Director of Special Projects at the IOP, and I am excited to identify spaces to grow the organization, and help to create a more welcoming space for all Harvard community members. Apart from serving as the Director of Special Projects, I formerly chaired Community Action Committee (CAC), and am a member of Fellows and Study Groups (FSG) and Forum Committee. Beyond the IOP, I serve as the President of the Harvard College Democrats and am a Peer Advising Fellow (PAF) for first-year students. A lover of learning about the world, I have spent much time finding 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!
