Hannah Ceja

MPA, Economics and Public Policy
School of Public and International Affairs
Class of 2023

Prior to coming to Princeton, Hannah served as senior policy adviser to U.S. Representative Juan Vargas (D-CA), covering financial services, housing, labor, and other issues, as well as generally supporting the congressman’s work for the only California district that shares a border with Mexico. Hannah graduated from Barnard College with a degree in economics, and began her career as a paralegal for the Bronx Legal Aid Society’s Housing Help Program, where she worked with tenants to end their eviction proceedings. Later, as a Fulbright Binational Business Scholar, she worked in financial analysis and research for public infrastructure projects at the Mexico City office of Evercore Partners, while taking graduate courses in finance and economics at the Autonomous Technological Institute of Mexico. After her time in Mexico and prior to working in Congress, Hannah worked in field organizing for Beto O’Rourke’s senatorial campaign, and later as a press assistant for Senator Elizabeth Warren’s presidential campaign. As a graduate student, she looks forward to studying financial reforms that would facilitate increased wealth and economic opportunity for low- and moderate-income communities, and would support systemic financial stability domestically, as well as on the international level.
