I’m Joelle (she/her) and I served on the jGirls+ editorial board for two years. My last year I was head of the fiction department. Currently, I’m a member of the class of 2026 at the University of Richmond where I’m studying biology.
In addition to my passion for science, I also love literature and theatre. Besides serving on jGirls +, some of my favorite activities as a high student in Chicago included serving on The Steppenwolf Theatre’s Young Adult Council and helping to plan and market the Chicago Public Library’s annual ChiTeen Lit Festivals.
