Emily Harris

Emily Harris is a current student at Barnard College completing her third year in an English degree with a Sociology minor. Emily was born in New Jersey, raised in a half-serbian household who taught her a love for the fine arts and the importance of exploring culture and travel. Through these early experiences, Emily grew to love global literature and journalism, and has written for various publications with her working degree including Inside New York, Ideasmyth and HerCampus. She also served as the third member on Barnard’s Poetry Slam team for two years in 2010-2012, where she performed at the National College Competition (CUPSI) in Ann Arbor, Michigan and in La Verne, California. Her other internships include working for MUSE Film & Television on the nationally acclaimed and sundance-award winning documentary Ai WeiWei: Never Sorry as a post-production assistant to documentary filmmaker Alison Klayman. Emily is currently continuing her work in the editorial and publications field, while still holding onto her love for her Serbian roots, Poetry Slam, and filmmaking.
