The executive board of Her Campus at Purdue is very excited to announce the March recipient of our member of the month award, Emani Powell. Emani has been a wonderful, dedicated member to our chapter. Therefore, we couldn’t imagine a better choice to receive the honor of Member of the Month and are so delighted to share her with all of our readers. To get to know our March Member of the Month a little bit more, read the interview below!
What is your name, major, and year in school?
My name is Emani Powell, and I am currently a senior majoring in Communications and concentrating in Mass Media.
Where are you from?
I am from Portage Indiana (People call it the region and it’s funny because no one ever knows portage when they first hear it but as soon as I say the region, people automatically know where I am talking about.)
How long have you been a member of Her Campus at Purdue?
This is my first year with Her Campus!
What is your favorite thing about being involved with HC at Purdue?
I really like the group aspect of it and the group bonding activities we do together.
Why did you choose to join HC at Purdue?
Since this is my last year of college, I really wanted to make it memorable for myself and get involved somehow on campus and meet new people and I have always loved to write and for the past few years I have had this big passion for all things pop culture, and I feel like HC at Purdue is the perfect thing to combine both passions.
What do you like to do outside of school?
I love to bake; I usually find my recipes on TikTok and Pinterest and attempt to recreate them. I also am a big reader and there is just something so satisfying about updating my good reads account every time I finish a new book that I cannot explain.

Broadcast Performance (Com 495)

What is one thing about you that surprises people?
I have collected snow globes since I was a kid, and I am up to around 30 now.
What would you tell someone thinking about joining HC at Purdue?

Is there anything else you want our readers to know about you?
If this journalism thing does not work out for me, my backup plan is to be a contestant on either The Bachelor or Love Island.
