Anwar Omeish ’19


Anwar is a junior at Harvard concentrating in Social Studies with a secondary in Statistics. Her involvement in PBHA began as a member of the Student Labor Action Movement (SLAM) and an attendee of the fall 2015 Advocacy and Organizing course. Since then, she has also begun volunteering with the Harvard-Rindge Muslim Youth Program. Whether on the picket lines with striking workers or with her mentees, Anwar has loved her time volunteering with PBHA programs, both addressing community needs and fighting for structural change. After serving as the Advocacy, Health, and Housing Programming Group Officer last year, she became even more involved in PBHA as a Programming Chair this past year. As President, Anwar hopes to build and expand PBHA’s community partnerships and mobilize students to support community-led advocacy and activism around important causes.
