Currently pursuing Bachelor’s degrees in English and Women’s and Gender Studies at Sewanee: The University of the South, Quinn Needham is a Nashville native with a passion for intersectional feminism. At Sewanee, she has participated in various organizations to champion volunteerism and community engagement both on and off campus.
Quinn is a member of the Leadership Coalition and Sewanee Women Engaging and Empowering the Community; two organizations that connect Sewanee women and student leaders to underserved communities outside of campus, an orientation leader/freshman mentor charged with acclimating incoming freshmen to campus and providing them with proper sexual assault bystander training, and she is a current resident of the Bairnwick Women’s Center; a house dedicated to providing the university community with resources to speak out against discrimination based on gender, class, race, religion and/or sexuality.
Quinn is so excited to be combining her loves of communication, both verbal and written, with female empowerment through her work at Harper Hill Global. She is inspired by Harper Hill’s mission and the conviction of its leaders and collaborators.
