DeAndre Johnson

DeAndre Johnson, ‘24, is a junior studying public policy with a concentration in discrimination, crime, and poverty. Having grown up low-income in the South (including Georgia, Tennessee, and Texas), he is interested broadly in understanding the causes and consequences of growing income inequality and developing solutions to address it. To this end, he has become involved in service endeavors in and outside of the Haas Center centered on empowering historically marginalized communities. At the Haas Center, he has tutor-mentored with the High School Support Initiative (HSSI) and worked as an education partnerships fellow supporting the East Palo Alto Stanford Academy and HSSI. DeAndre is also involved in research in labor economics and policy, trying to understand barriers to employment and upward career mobility. He is a resident assistant in Otero, the public service and civic engagement theme dorm. Outside of service and the classroom, DeAndre serves as financial officer and sings baritone in the Stanford Fleet Street Singers, the university’s only all-original comedy acapella group. After Stanford, DeAndre hopes to pursue graduate study in economics and eventually influence economic policy-making at state and national levels.
