Emma Davey ’18

Houston, TX
Major: Politics
Interests

Intersectional feminism, cheesy '80s music, art museums, salt and vinegar chips, outer space, crop tops,

Why hello there! I’m Emma, and I’m a fourth-year politics major from Houston (H-Town vicious). While I don’t always agree with the political climate of the South, I do appreciate a good pecan pie with a nice scoop of Bluebell Homemade Vanilla ice cream on top.

Through my years at Oberlin, I’ve been involved with Students United for Reproductive Freedom, WOBC, and The Grape. I love music of the indie rock persuasion and Italian food. My favorite movie is Heathers. I love musicals. When I was in second grade, I told the school yearbook that my hero was Beyonce, and it’s still true. I have an unusual fondness for rainy days. I’m an Aquarius and an INTJ if that means anything to anyone. If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be all four of the Golden Girls.

Things you can find me doing: attempting to read for pleasure, drinking vanilla lattes from The Local, and doing the dance to the red dress version of Kate Bush’s “Wuthering Heights.”

We all had an awkward phase. Me, I was a twelve-year-old Twilight fan rocking out to Nirvana, lamenting that my classmates weren't as cool as Daria Morgendorffer.
