I’m a student at Agnes Scott College majoring in English Literature and Political Science with interests in both journalism and environmental justice. Through my English Literature Senior Capstone research project, I am exploring the topics of ecofeminism in black American women’s autobiographical writing. Alongside that, for the completion of my Political Science major, I am performing a study on the effects of killings of journalists on freedom of speech.
In my time at Agnes Scott, all of my work has focused on uplifting the narratives of underrepresented groups in both literature and environmentalism. Once I graduate, I hope to continue advancing these interests in thoughtful and creative ways.
As the Environmental Justice intern for Agnes Scott’s Center for Sustainability, I am designing our 2019 Year of Climate Justice which will feature a line-up of programs which aim to create more discussions and awareness of environmental justice topics in our campus community. Previously, I worked with the Center for Sustainability, generating engaging online content for their new website and assisting the team in writing their 2018 STARS (Sustainability Tracking and Review System) report, which was given a Gold rating by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education.
From 2016 to 2018, I acted as the Co-Founder and Editor-in-Chief for Her Campus, an online magazine at Agnes Scott. I managed a team of writers to produce daily content for the Agnes Scott community. During that time, I interned with Creative Loafing, Atlanta’s award-winning alt-weekly magazine, where I was published both in print and online. In the fall of 2017, I had the opportunity to intern with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), writing feature stories about their community outreach through the College/Underserved Community Partnership Program (CUPP). Currently, I act as Agnes Scott’s campus ambassador to Atlanta’s United Nations Regional Center for Expertise Youth Network, where I collaborate with other campus leaders to connect college students across Georgia in pursuit of meeting the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
