Powell is an avid fan of Orange is the New Black, grits (not the kind they serve in Harvard dining halls), and anything that is sparkly. When Powell’s not doing stuff for QSA, you can find him destroying his roommate, James, in ping pong, rambling about cars, or complaining about the frozen wasteland that is the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Ash

Year: 2017

Gender Pronouns: any and all used respectfully

Bio: Ash is a first-year student living in Canaday planning to study Psychology and Studies of Women, Gender, & Sexuality. Ash lives in the suburbs of Boston but was born in Peru. Taking an equal amount of pride in being a gay male and Peruvian, he’s interested in queer issues and the intersectionality that comes with a queer person of color. Besides being a proud person of color, Ash enjoys playing Pokémon and watching RuPaul’s Drag Race. He treats everyday as if he were on a runway for a panel of judges, and he always makes them eat it.

Concentration: Government  

Year: 2015

Gender Pronouns: he/him/his

Bio: Howdy everyone! As a Harvard undergraduate, I’ve worked extensively with government-related issues through the IOP and other organizations and I hope to bring some of that experience to the QSA as one of your political co-chairs. Although this is my first time serving on the board, I have great ideas that I look forward to advancing over the year in order to bridge the gap between the realms of LGBTQ issues and politics. I look forward to working with you so that we may make our visions become realities. Feel free to contact me with ideas or comments!

Secretary:

James

House/Dorm: Currier 

Concentration: Social Studies 

Year: 2016

Gender Pronouns: he/him/his

Bio: Hey everyone! My name is James and I am a rising sophomore concentrating in Sociology and working towards a citation in Spanish. I’m originally from the San Diego area in southern California. I lived in Hollis Hall as a freshman and am excited to say that I will be living in Currier House next year with some of my closest friends. Outside of academics, I tutor local elementary school students in Boston and am on the board of the Queer Students and Allies group here on campus. In my free time I enjoy doing activities with my friends like heading down to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston or just grabbing a bite to eat in Harvard Square. I’m not quite sure what the future holds for me but am currently pursuing law school. I am very excited for my first term with the QSA as secretary and hope to make a positive impact with my time on the board.

Maddie

House/Dorm: Winthrop

Concentration: Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations & Comparative Literature

Year: 2016

Gender Pronouns: she/her/hers

Bio: Hey, everyone! My name is Maddie Studt, and I’m currently a sophomore in Winthrop House studying Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations and Comparative Literature. I’m originally from California by way of Maryland, and I generally go by she/her/hers.I’m a middle child, gay androgynous boi, life-long musician, academic, partier, coffee-lover, and somewhat lazy gym rat. I’ve got a penchant for masculine fashion with feminine undertones. My academic interests mainly lie in the intersection of religion, art, and politics in the Middle East, but I’ve also got a soft spot for studying queer or non-normative Middle Eastern identities. I love meeting new people, and I look forward to getting to know Harvard’s queer community better (and hosting some fabulous parties) as social co-chair!
