Kenna Srivastava is a student in the School of Arts and Sciences majoring in Philosophy, History and Political Science, with a minor in Economics. On campus, she serves as Secretary for the Rutgers Democrats, the University’s largest partisan student organization. Her civic engagement was catalyzed by the early aughts of the 2016 election cycle, during which she developed interests in political messaging and identity, as well as normative and meta-ethics. In the time since, she worked extensively with grassroots nonprofits and on various campaigns, most recently with those of Rep. Tom Malinowski (NJ-07) and Rep. Frank Pallone (NJ-06) ahead of the 2022 Midterm Elections. In addition to her campaign experience, she was selected to participate in the 2022 NEW Leadership New Jersey summer institute run by the Center for American Women and Politics. She has previously conducted research on the impacts of geopolitical instability on the prices of oil futures in association with the Courant School of Mathematical Sciences at New York University. Outside of class, you can find Kenna listening to mildly depressing indie music, reading memoirs, or dissecting sitcoms. After her tenure at Rutgers, Kenna hopes to attend law school, where she plans to focus on constitutional law and socio-legal theory.
