Emily (she/her) is from Marietta, Georgia, and is double majoring in politics and mathematics with minors in comparative American studies and gender, sexuality, and feminist studies.

Her extracurricular activities include leading both the Oberlin Student Theater Association and the Oberlin College Democrats.

She also has learned to cook everything from roasted chickpeas to bread in Oberlin’s student cooperative system known as OSCA.

Emily also loves to watch reality television in her free time, from which she has developed a course in the Experimental College (ExCo) on representation of queer women on screen. After Oberlin, she hopes to staff a 2020 political campaign.

She was drawn to Oberlin for its support of those with many, many interests—from the encouragement of her own combination to the diverse and surprising passions of her fellow Obies.
