My name is Tenzin Gund-Morrow and I'm a sophomore (Class of 2026) from New York City in Kirkland House currently studying Government on the Public Policy track. I'm Co-Chair of the John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum Committee, which does ideation, outreach, and production for the premier Harvard venue hosting candid dialogue on politics, public service, and global affairs with our world's current, former, and emerging leaders. Over the next year, I am looking forward to making speakers more accessible to students, hosting more student centered Forums, and ensuring that as many students as possible get to moderate Forums. I also have served as Director of Community for the Fellows and Study Groups Program, and as a member of the Harvard Votes Challenge and Politics of Race and Ethnicity Programs.
Outside of the IOP, I am Student Ambassador to the Harvard & the Legacy of Slavery Initiative, I give tours for the Admissions Office and Crimson Key Society, and I'm a member of the Editorial Board of the Crimson and Arts Board of the Advocate. Off campus, I have interned at the White House Office of Communications, the Office of New York City Councilman Chi Ossé, the New York Civil Liberties Union, and the Innocence Project. In my free time, you can find me baking sweets, learning new art mediums, and listening to audio books on 2x speed.
