Meet Emma, an I-House resident since August.
@emmafreezie is a student at Emory University living at I-House with the Bard Globalization and International Affairs cohort.
Hailing from Phoenix, Arizona, Emma has been interested in politics and international affairs since she was young due to the heavily politicized environment. Studying to become a lawyer, to Emma, “Political demonstrations amplify marginalized voices and bring necessary attention to social problems, but street activism must be coupled with concrete policy reform to create permanent change. I will never be satisfied until I can understand the law, get in the courtroom, and argue for what I believe in myself. Chanting in the streets is sexy, but someone also has to read the fine print and know how to maneuver through bureaucracy when enacting policy reform. That is where I see myself in the grand fight for social change.”
