  • Madeline Griffin

    Madeline Griffin

    I grew up in a small, traditional part of the world. Because of that, I have always been very interested in different cultures, countries, languages, etc. Before college, I was heavily involved in music, which I continue to pursue through local and college choirs and programs. After studying abroad in Spain and teaching in Costa Rica, I work as a Global Ambassador with the OIE (Office of International Education) to facilitate international learning and global citizenship. I also work at the MCA Gallery, where we promote learning through the arts, which are just as important. In the future, I hope to promote global learning in whatever career I pursue, whether it be through language learning, music, art, history, or International Affairs.

    I am originally from Monterrey, Mexico so soccer runs in my blood, I enjoy reading books and one of my favorite authors is Elie Wiesel, I like running, Boxing, Yoga, and Dancing to Bachata. Recently I’ve worked as an intern with the Migrant Health Network in South West Virginia. I really enjoyed my time there and would like to stay in the area and become a Migrant Outreach Worker to help Migrants in the community as well as the community as a whole.

  • Neha Rai

    Neha Rai

    I am a Politics and Law major with a double minor in Philosophy and Gender studies. My interests align with the extracurricular activities I am involved in the campus. A lot of them have to do with community service and social justice causes. Some of them include the Emory Climate Collaborative, Sustained Dialogue Program, Bonner Program, the Pre-Law Society among many others. I intend on pursuing a career in law after graduation. Although I am still unclear about what particular type of law I want to study, I am hoping that it has something to do with non-profit organizations fighting for social justice issues.

  • Zeke Workman Headshot

    Zeke Workman

    I am very interested in the judicial system and I believe that I can be an asset to the legal community by practicing law and advocating justice for all. After graduation, I plan on attending law school to obtain my J.D to practice criminal and injury law. On campus, I am involved with SGA, Housing Residence & Life, and the Cailopeans’ Literary Society. I am also a member of the Men’s soccer and tennis team here on campus.

  • Jaynae Wright

    Jaynae Wright

    I’m a Libra. Although I place no stock in astrology, my sign describes me rather well. My core passion is grappling with the challenges and hypocrisies of justice. I triple major and participate in SGA and Debate Society (among other wonderful activities) because I want to be prepared to be a Renaissance woman in the two career paths I’m planning to enter: Community Development through Chamber of Commerce directing or a judge for family court.
