This is the executive board from Spring to Winter 2019. Get to know us!




Ren (he/him/his) is a second-year from just outside of Boston, MA, studying something in SESP (maybe he’ll have figured it out by the time you’re reading this!) His hobbies include taking naps, going on walks around the lakefill with friends, and finding good food. As a former XC runner, Ren will go on a ~slow-paced run if you ask him, but has yet to take the initiative to do so by himself in college.



Vice President

Alex (she/her/hers) is a second-year from the Bay Area, majoring in Political Science and minoring in Advanced Asian Languages. Besides making an excessive number of Spotify playlists (she currently has upwards of 100), she enjoys reading from FiveThirtyEight, talking about California, and wearing her Birkenstocks. Her favorite song right now is “Goodie Bag” by Still Woozy.




Abigail (she/her/hers) is a second-year student studying legal studies and history. She is from Whitefish, Montana-  45 minutes away from the beautiful Glacier National Park. Feel free to ask her about anything and everything hiking and mountains. She is passionate about criminal justice reform and ending mass incarceration. When not reading the New York Times, she is probably checking out her discover weekly on spotify.




Amy (she/her/hers) is a second-year from England studying just about everything in the hopes that her major is somewhere in there. Outside of organizing the lives of the rest of Exec, she enjoys hunting down other people’s dogs to pet on campus - she would love you to tell her when you see one - and reminding Woos to look after themselves. When you next see her in the WFFL, she’d love it if you told her about your day (and remind her about the cup of tea she made and forgot about).



Public Relations Chair

Riley Mulcahy (she/her/hers) is a second-year Theatre & Mathematics double major from Plainfield, IL. She loves philosophical debate, reading YA books, and throwing chairs at people when she gets frustrated with her homework. She is always down to go get coffee or ice cream and talk about anything in the world.



Philanthropy Chair

Alana (she/her/hers) is a second-year Biology major from Bannockburn, IL who is still trying to figure out what she want to be when she grows up. She enjoys Netflix, eating Andy’s, and drinking too much coffee. She is always willing to discuss any reality tv show with you (seriously she has seen them all). You can usually find her in the WFFL talking to her friends and procrastinating completing her homework.



Social Chair

Elam Blackwell (he/him/his) is second-year a physics/theatre double major here at Northwestern University. Interests include: Math, Dungeons and Dragons, Eating, Wondering what's happening, and Chilling in the Woo Shack. He's always free to play a board game or to summon Frances Willard's spirit with anyone who is interested. He's excited to be social chair, and even more excited for the Willard shenanigans this year!



Social Chair

Emma Edmund (she/her/hers) is a second-year journalism student from Tampa, Florida. When she’s not reading the most recent biography of the 29th U.S. president, Warren G. Harding, she can usually be found in a coffee shop in Evanston working on an article for The Daily Northwestern. Emma is always looking for the latest scoop (of ice cream), and she is totally down to discuss the latest Twitter trends.



Fellows Chair

Simona (she/her/hers) is a second-year from New York studying Materials Science Engineering and Art History.  In her spare time, she enjoys visiting museums, reading classic novels, and drinking sugary iced coffee. Catch her in the WFFL to share science memes or watch British TV shows!




Anjelique (Aj) Bomar (she/her/hers) is a third-year student in SESP majoring in Learning and Organizational Change. On the executive board, she is the Advisor giving her institutional knowledge because she was on the executive board last school year as the secretary. She is from Mound, Minnesota - 45 minutes away from the Twin Cities and near an awesome lake called Lake Minnetonka! Her favorite sport is volleyball (she’s a setter) and would also love to go on a run if you ask her too. Besides the color purple (Go ‘Cats), she loves monkeys. All kinds of apes and primates. All of them. Also feel free to get her anything coffee flavored
