Holly will be a first year at Columbia University in the city of New York this fall, studying English literature. Her passions lie in exploring the intersections of journalism and student activism. Holly is actively involved in Model United Nations, having hosted a student-led conference of over 150 participants in 2019, because she believes in the power of civil discourse and the need for student empowerment. Her journalistic experiences at That’s magazine and her high school’s media platform have continuously proved to her that every individual has a unique story to tell—and to tell it is an honor. In school, Holly is an avid volleyball player, member of several honor societies, and coffee addict. She looks forward to helping our next generation of leaders find their voices and develop their own stories.
