Hanna Hammoud is a rising junior in the School of Arts and Sciences Honors Program, double majoring in Political Science and Philosophy and minoring in Law and History. Hanna’s political interests center around economic distribution, delegations of political power, and international political affairs. Her philosophical interests center around political philosophy, ethical systems, philosophy of mind, and much more. At Rutgers, Hanna has been a member of the Paul Robeson Living-Learning Community since her freshman year, learning about the life and legacy of Rutgers graduate Paul Robeson alongside her LLC peers. She is also a member of the Community Ambassador Program, where she collaborates with other cultural LLCs to give back to the community through volunteer service with organizations such as Elijah’s Promise in New Brunswick. She currently works at the Paul Robeson Cultural Center, contributing to projects as an office assistant. As part of her political experience, Hanna campaigned as an intern for New Jersey representative Josh Gottheimer during his primary campaign in 2020, where she learned about the intricacies of political campaigns and how local politics is influential on a broader scale. An aspiring lawyer, Hanna is a member of the Rutgers Moot Court Association and the Pre-Law Society. Hanna’s primary legal interest is constitutional law, as she has always been fascinated by the political and philosophical implications deriving from various interpretations of the United States constitution. Other legal fields that interest her are international law, employment and labor law, and real estate law. Outside of being a student at Rutgers, Hanna is a recently licensed New Jersey real estate salesperson and NJ REALTOR, and has received the New Jersey REALTORS Educational Foundation Scholarship award. In her free time, Hanna enjoys reading, writing, drawing, cooking, and binging podcasts and political news streams.
