Emilly is the former editorial and new media intern of Bitch Media from late 2012 to mid-2013. She's been writing for Bitch since as well as a handful of other publications and writes on the topics of race, gender, and pop culture. She studied social work and education at Portland State University. An avid picture taker and blogger, she's documented fashionable folks around Portland through Ahora Mismo (www.ahora-mismo.com) and the Willamette Week.
She travels, drums, likes film (photography and, ya know, movies), and cooks up really great meals on occasion. Former dreams included attending graduate school in NYC. Current dreams include twittering more. (@_ahoramismo)
