Emerald Adeyan is a junior in the School of Letters and Sciences at UCLA, studying chemistry. Adeyan is interested in generating energy with minimal environmental impact and mitigating the effects of climate change. She feels these are issues that need to be promptly addressed as proactive efforts to improve current systems not widely represented in our society. On campus, Adeyan is an active member of the Alternative Breaks club, club soccer, and Afrikan Student Union. She dedicated her winter and spring break to learn about mass incarceration and how it destabilizes vulnerable and historically disadvantaged communities. She felt so inspired to help mitigate the lack of access to education in prisons that she is establishing a book-to-prison drive through her campus. Raised in Hayward, California, Adeyan loves whipping up new baking recipes, doing movie commentaries, and spending time with her family in her free time.
