Hans B.N.

National Director of Publicity

Hans (he/him/his) is a senior in the Southern California state and is excited to be serving as this year’s National Director of Publicity. His JSA journey began his freshman year when his chemistry partner/chapter president forced him to attend a meeting; there, he observed students discourse on problems he didn't know existed. He was continually informed and motivated by the diverse views that the JSA environment provided.

Still, in PJ pants, Hans walked into Winter Congress 2020 and was enlightened by the passion and talent of the people that surrounded him. He witnessed diplomatic political interactions, which definitely did not occur at his family's gatherings. Afterward, he joined the SoCal state cabinet in hopes of expanding and engaging the Channel Islands Region. JSA evolves his self-advocacy skills, which he uses to promote equity in his school district through Justice in the Classroom, a student coalition in his county.

As Director of Publicity, Hans hopes to make JSA more accessible by keeping all members updated and all events recorded. He also serves as his school's JSA chapter president. Outside of JSA, you’ll find Hans biking, cooking, thrifting, sewing, composting, or scheming to obtain a pet snail.
