With March being Womxn’s History Month, Emerson’s Career Development Center is presenting its third annual Womxn of Emerson Series. The series highlights Emerson womxn in the arts and communication and the many ways we define success.
Angelika Romero graduated from Emerson in 2015 with a Bachelor of Science in Journalism. She is currently a Juris Doctor (J.D.) candidate at Northeastern University School of Law (2019) and a Legal Intern at Reebok.
Romero was asked about what she thinks makes for great allyship:
In law school, I learned that advocacy is not limited to the courtroom. Rather, advocacy can take different shapes. I have been fortunate enough to be a member of various latinx organizations that support latinx students and encourage us to achieve our potential. I have also seen how important it is for women to have allies in and outside the classroom. Allyship, however, can be tricky and ineffective if it lacks thoughtfulness.
