Jelani Hayes

Hey Adams! I am a BGLTQ, Fellowships, and Pre-law tutor. I reside in the House with my partner, Ceylon, and our long-term guest Winnie, a beautiful black cat we've been babysitting for a while now. I received a B.A. in History with a minor in Sustainability and Environmental Management from the University of Pennsylvania in 2015, an A.M. in History from Harvard in 2019, and I am currently a (remote) J.D. student at Yale Law School. Between college and grad school, I worked in the White House. My academic interests include U.S. history, carceral studies, family law, and environmental policy. My personal goal is to perfect the art of throwing a dinner party. These days, I find joy in bike riding on the Charles and wearing lipstick under my mask.

Things I love:

Travel, bike rides, long talks and walks, animals, chocolate
