2025

My name is Nahla, and I am a first year from Houston Texas in Weld Hall. My love for public service is rooted in work around racial justice and educational equity and I’ve had the opportunity to explore these issues further while studying government and educational studies. I’m thrilled to serve as co-director of Membership and I’m looking forward to strengthening our community, creating connections between our IOPers, and working to diversify our brilliant group of members! I’m also a proud member of PRE and CIVICS, and I previously participated in the policy program. Outside of the IOP, I dance with Expressions, staff conferences for Harvard Model Congress and Harvard Model United Nations, and work with the Harvard Democrats. In my free time, you can definitely find me baking, binging Netflix shows with friends, or exploring Boston.
