Sherine Andreine Powerful, MPH

Sherine Andreine Powerful, MPH (ID: Sherine, Mx., she, they) is a Doctor of Public Health candidate at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. As a Black Caribbean Feminist, she is committed to celebrating and furthering pleasure, healing, and liberation for Black, Brown, and Indigenous peoples and persons of diverse a/genders and a/sexualities, particularly those from the Caribbean. Her present interests include feminist global health and development; gender and sexual health, equity, and justice; and resilience and anticolonial sustainable development in the context of climate change. In this current critical juncture, her lived experiences are moving her towards the creation/curation of a life in which pleasure is greater than productivity. If you can catch her, you’ll probably find her obsessing over the color turquoise, gorging on chocolate-covered pineapples, or teaching herself experience design to boost her event planning prowess!
