Bio: Powell is a Southern belle from Raleigh, North Carolina, the world’s best place ever. 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.
Cultural and Gender Diversity Chairs:
Bio: Kapena is a Native Hawaiian Aztec Reina in Cabot House. A joint-concentrator in Music and Statistics hailing from Los Angeles (the *only place* where palm trees, skateboarding teens, oddball bohemians, and the occasional movie star appear), Kapena likes long walks to the fridge, dismantling hegemonic power structures, QUAD LYFE, and playing his Renaissance lute. When not werking for QSA, GLOW, or the Office of BGLTQ Student Life, you can find Kapena with his headphones on twerking to a sick Bach fugue on Cabot lawn, or in HRO rehearsal.
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!
Concentration: Social Studies
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.
