Hello, my name is Emma Karin Eriksson (she/her)
I received a Masters in Library and Information Science with Distinction from Pratt Institute in 2019 and a Bachelors of Fine Art in Writing with Honors from Brooklyn College in 2014.
I am an activist-academic whose personal and professional life is driven by a commitment to social justice. I believe in people over property and profits. In my downtime you can catch me practicing my handwriting, cultivating a scissor arsenal, and compulsively fretting.
