  • Name: Kawther Berhanu

    Recipient Year: 2019

    Congressional Office: Rep. Pramila Jayapal (WA-7)

    Bio: Kawther is a Government major and Arabic and Justice and Peace Studies double minor. When the Gates Millennium and Coca Cola Scholar is not gushing about Atlanta or her time abroad in Amman, Kawther can be found working to bring communities together. She does this through her role as President of the Muslim Student Association, her positions in the Georgetown Scholars Program, and Student of Color Alliance. Last summer, she was a policy and advocacy intern at MPAC and this summer she looks forward to gaining hands-on experience on the Hill particularly in a moment with many women of color in office.
