Emma Harrington is a freelance writer and former magazine editor who has been working with various student-lead publications since her sophomore year in high school. She graduated from Fordham University at Lincoln Center with a BA in Journalism and a minor in Psychology. She was also one of the founding editors of Fordham’s French literary magazine, Le Bélier, as well as the assistant Fashion Editor for the Fordham magazine FLASH. Though she is originally from Maine, she fell in love with New York City while touring colleges and has lived there since 2016, while she was obtaining her degree. Her favorite place in New York is the main branch of the New York Public Library, and she has spent many afternoons studying and reading underneath the beautiful ceilings of the Rose Reading Room.
Emma’s college essay was about the importance of focusing on the academic and cultural enrichment offered by attending university and not losing sight of why people apply to college in the first place.
