Current Events and Culture
Hello! My name is Emily and I’m a junior at Walter Payton College Prep. When I’m not studying or doing school work, I tutor kids at a local elementary school. Prior to COVID-19, I was training to be a camp counselor with the park district. This school year, I anticipate starting a volunteer-based club that will educate students about the various issues that women face in a patriarchal society, as well as provide feminine supplies to women in homeless shelters. In addition to playing soccer and tennis, I love biking around the city. The fields of study I most see myself going into are law and economics. I am excited to become a writer for Stay Rad because I think that it is important for teenagers to have a platform to share their experiences and educate others about social, political, and economic issues in our world. Writing is a medium for a change!
