Meherina Khan ’21

President

Meherina is a junior at Harvard College studying Social Anthropology and Neuroscience. She first became involved with PBHA her freshman year through various mentorship programs before joining the Keylatch team in the South End as a summer director and term-time afterschool director. 

As President, Meherina will continue to support the amalgam of programs offered by PBHA while encouraging directors and volunteers to think critically about what it means to work with and work in the communities they serve. Along with chairing the Board of Trustees, Meherina hopes to represent and advocate for student interests in public service at Harvard and beyond. Ultimately, she strives to foster a welcoming and inclusive environment within PBHA that reflects a deeper commitment to celebrating and supporting community and student growth. 

More often than not, you can find Meherina wandering around the Phillips Brooks House either searching for inspiration or an excuse to evade her rapidly growing email inbox. Outside of PBHA, Meherina is a Peer Advising Fellow (PAF) and enjoys reading, cooking and watching dramas (English, Korean, Hindi, Urdu, Bangla — you name it, chances are she’s seen it or is currently watching it).
