Sascha Pakravan

Harvard Political Union

My name is Sascha, and I am a sophomore (Class of 2026) from Honolulu, Hawaii in Eliot House studying Economics and Government. I am the Chair of the Harvard Political Union, which is the center for debate on Harvard's campus; the oldest collegiate debate society in the nation, the HPU brings together students from diverse viewpoints and backgrounds in order to facilitate dynamic discussions on all things politics. Over the next year, I am looking forward to expanding our presence across the Ivy League and within our own University community. I also serve on HPOP and attend JFK Jr. Forum events regularly. Outside of the IOP, I am involved with the Harvard Phoenix Investment Fund and an Investment Ambassador for Plug and Play's Venture Capital arm. In my free time, I like to watch the market, read political articles, and work on cars.
