Olivia Lewis

Hello, I am Olivia Lewis and I use she/her pronouns. I identify as a biracial and asexual woman. I am in my senior year at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor in Belton, TX. I am getting my BA in English with minors in writing and music. I plan to work with non-profits after I graduate and possibly teach English overseas. I studied abroad this summer in four countries and plan to study in London for a semester. In my free time I play with dogs, write short stories and songs, and do late night runs to Whataburger or Buc-ee’s!






Angela Quintanilla-Capawana

Hi! My name is Angela (she/they) and I am a Duke University freshman intending to major in Global Health & Biology. I am excited to work with Campus Pride on my own college campus on advocacy issues and community building among LGBTQ+ young adults. Outside of the professional setting, I enjoy reading, all things music, and being out in nature.






EJ Schumacher

Hello, friends! I’m EJ Schumacher (they/them/elle). I’m a queer, non-binary, (dis)abled Honors Scholar at Northeastern Illinois University where I am pursuing my second bachelor’s degree – majoring in Biology with a minor in Social Justice. My research focus is Critical Ecology with an emphasis on Indigenous botanical/ecological science. During the 2023/2024 academic year, I am serving the NEIU student body (and thereby disrupting the status quo) as Vice President of the Student Government Association, VP of Service for the University Honors Program, a Co-Chair of the University Diversity Committee, and a representative of the Green Fee Committee. I hold leadership roles within several student organizations, including the Pride Alliance and the Green Conservation Group. Outside of school, I am an active volunteer in my community, including being a Master Naturalist with the Cook County Forest Preserves. By day, I lead the less-than-exciting life of a legal secretary. I’m very excited to be on the Campus Pride intern team and hope to increase LGBTQIA2S+ representation on my campus & beyond!
