Chavi Coy, Communications Intern
Hi everyone!! My name is Chavi Coy and I use she/her pronouns. I’m currently a sophomore, class of 2026, and am mentoring under Shreya Mehta as the communications intern!! When I’m not stressing out about whether to major in international relations or public policy, I like to read and watch adult animation.I'm a self-described rebel with a cause with my causes being decolonizing economics and feminism, pursuing journalism in the context of social movements, and using exclamation marks/emojis in professional settings ☺️. I can't wait to foster my friendships with everyone in the team and grow in a close-knit community.
