Emily Miller: Creative Writer & Future Educator

Meet Emily Miller, a twenty-one year old senior English major from Barnegat, NJ. When she’s not busy writing essays for class or planning events for Ink, you can find her reading, painting, writing, or traveling to just about anywhere! Continue reading to learn a little bit more about Emily’s experience at TCNJ.

What made you come to TCNJ?:

I didn't want to be too far from home and it was my favorite in-state school. I loved how small the class sizes were too!

What are you involved in on campus?:

I am currently the co-President of Ink, the creative writing club. I also work as the Audience Services Specialist at the Center for the Arts.

How has your involvement shaped your experience at TCNJ?:

My freshman and sophomore years, I tried out a lot of different clubs and activities. It actually really helped me narrow down what I really wanted to get involved in and put most of my effort in to. Being involved in a club like Ink, it's helped me grow close to much of the English and Creative Writing departments and gain some valuable relationships.

What are you looking forward to most about your senior year?:

My internship with the director of the New Jersey Commission on Holocaust Education!

What has been the biggest lesson you've learned in college?:

The more you put yourself out there and the more things you try, good things will always come back to you. Don't shy away from new experiences and embrace all of it while you can!

 

After college, Emily hopes to work in genocide or human rights education. In fact, her dream is to teach or write with the Southern Poverty Law Center.
