Katie Pynne: My work in WGS has been incredibly important to me, and I’ve loved being able to take what I’ve learned in my classes into my personal life and community. This department has helped me grow into a better, more well rounded person with a desire to learn constantly. When I’m not deconstructing systems of oppression, I enjoy surrounding myself with nice people, hard cider, reruns of Gossip Girl, and guacamole.
