Jeron Fenton


My name is Jeron Fenton. I am currently a fourth-year Ph.D. student in Politics and Social Policy, and I am very excited to be returning as an RGS to Forbes. 

I was born in the Bronx, NY, and raised in Mount Vernon, NY. I completed my undergraduate education here at Princeton in Politics with a Certificate in Political Economy. During undergrad, I was an Outdoor Action Leader, Contributor for the Daily Princetonian, and Treasurer of Princeton’s African Students Association. I also studied abroad in London at King’s College during my junior year and am a Princeton in Beijing alumni. Before returning to Princeton to start my graduate studies, I worked as a Federal Government Consultant in Washington D.C. and a Product Manager in the Bay Area.

When I am not studying, I love being active outdoors. My two favorite sports are basketball and ping pong. I also am a sneaker enthusiast and enjoy listening to music, cooking, and a good game of Mario Kart. I am looking forward to engaging with you all in the Forbes community and learning more about your personal and academic journeys this year!
