Hannah is a junior in Columbia College studying Political Science and History. She was raised by a Jewish father and Mexican-American mother in a small mountain town in the Southwestern corner of Colorado. There, she realized an interest in the relationship—oftentimes inconsistent—between law and justice. Her parents, both politically active, inspired her to become active in, and attentive to, politics and local issues of justice at an early age. At Columbia, she works as a research assistant at the Law School for Professor Bernard E. Harcourt, a staff writer for the Blue and White Magazine, and a tutor with Community Impact, One-to-One Tutoring. Prior to joining the Student Advisory Board this past fall, she volunteered for the Eric H. Holder Jr. Initiative, helping to put on student events to supplement the Initiative's panels. She is also involved in Columbia's creative writing and music scenes, having previously served as an editor for Quarto, Columbia's Undergraduate Literary Magazine, and played in multiple bands. In her free time, she enjoys being outside: climbing mountains and skiing, backpacking and cycling, and sleeping in the desert and mountains close to her home. In New York, she enjoys reading and writing fiction and poetry, playing guitar and singing folk songs, and going to museums and concerts.
