Student Spotlight: Emma Brick-Hezeau

Mar 07, 2020

Emma is a Newcomb Scholar double-majoring in Anthropology and Political Science, and double-minoring in Economics and Arabic. She is interested in how economic policies interact with gender, gendered systems, and inequality, and in January 2020 Emma received a grant from Newcomb Institute to attend Feminist Camp in New York City.

"Feminist camp is a packed week running around New York City with a cohort of passionate feminists learning about how to be a feminist professional, activist, organizer, or all three. Though exposure to a vast array of feminist careers was my primary interest going into the experience, I found that the most impactful part of feminist camp for me was getting to know the other people in my cohort. I now have a professional and personal support network that spans the globe and am excited to hear about what my fellow feminist campers do next. This experience was challenging, frustrating, inspiring, and exciting. It exposed me to people and careers I wouldn't otherwise have been aware of, and I am grateful to Newcomb Institute for connecting me to this experience and enabling me to attend."
