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 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.
