Kirsten Hemrich

Tell us a bit about what you’re doing now and how you got to where you are:
I currently am on fellowship at UVA for visual art. I also work part-time for Iris Magazineas an illustrator. My illustrations often address identity, feminism, and political issues. My paintings however are more abstract and address the nuances of memory and my own personal experiences.

To the Alumni of the University of Virginia

We write to you as alumni with a message and a request that we hope you will support.

The last several years have seen thousands of students launch and fulfill dreams at the University, much as we did. Yet there has also been a significant amount of turmoil. Many of us scattered around the country and the world have watched and read about the cultural and historical issues that are challenging students and the larger community of Charlottesville, Virginia. One of these issues is sexual violence -- which no one condones.

Alumna Spotlight: Michelle Cho

Tell us about the professional path that’s brought you where you are – completely planned, surprisingly organic or somewhere in between?

When I  was in high school applying to college, I was dead-set on being a politics major. Government was my favorite AP class, and I couldn’t wait to be 18 to cast my vote. When I got to UVA, I thought I wanted to be a journalist. By the end of my college experience, I found the middle ground that somewhat bridges the two - public policy.

Annie Forrest, Women's Center Alum

It is fitting that we feature Annie Forrest as one of our October Spotlight profiles, since Annie's work for the One Love Foundation--a relationship violence programming provider, founded to honor UVA student Yeardley Love--aligns with the mission of Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Annie interned with the Women's Center Gender Violence and Social Change program, and says, "My professors and peers at UVA were pivotal in helping me find my strength to do this work."
